I feel like an idiot that I'm not getting this one, so here it is:

I discovered a missing bulb in my passenger side, bottom corner (the 194A). So I installed one. Didnt turn them on to test since it was daylight. A couple hours later I turned them on after changing my radiator hoses. Well, my corner parking lights front and back don't work. I assumed its a fuse, but I can't find one in the kick panel or under hood. It's a 1998 2wd Laredo. Am I totally overlooking this?

Cool thanks man. Here's a pic of my fuse panel diagram. Cuz my #17 is not blown. I suppose I'll pick up a relay today at work and give that a try.

Pull Park Lamp Relay.

Use tester or meter, check for +12v on relay Pins#30 & #86. (from Fuse#17) (key ON or OFF)

Test park lamps by bypassing relay... jumper relay socket Pins#30 & #87.

Did this issue ever get resolved? I am wondering because I am having the same problem, no parking lights. Looked at fuse 17 (15amp) and it is fine.
Is the relay panel referred to by KoreaZJ under the hood?

Like seriously...a 97 jeep grand cherokee Laredo aka ZJ has two fuse boxes( one under the good by coolant, the other by the passenger kick panel) neither saying where the parking relay fuse would be.
