fuse 10 is the fuse that should have power when the lights are turned on, its the fuse box under the dash , make sure not only that its not blown but make sure that the fuse has power when the lights are turned on, if not then the issue can be the "PRK LPM PCB " relay. let me know what you find, Lou P.
