I want to replace a blown out bulb on my passenger side parking light but can't find access to the lamp socket. I can get to all the other lamps (headlight, signal, etc.) just dont know where to access the parking lamp.

Replace flasher, replace blown fuses.
remove bulb and put another new one in, test.
remove bulb check socket for corrosion - wipe with dielectric grease if corroded. reinsert bulb test.
very carefully check all wires connected to back of socket -
look for break or splits --R&R.
Check the signal feed wire with a probe from the back of the bulb socket - go back along wire towards signal light relay. R&R
You can find diagram on the web if you need one.
If you have a test light, you can check for power at the light sockets and connectors. If you have power, you can connect the alligator clip on the test light to the positive side of the battery and test for a faulty ground...Good luck!
There is an 'access panel' in the trunk liner right behind the tail lamp assy. Loosen wingnut to release cover. Now you have access to the bulb sockets. Be sure you replace the bulb with the same type (dual filament).. otherwise you could cause a short circuit between the 'parking lamp' and the 'brake lamp' circuits.
you have two wires touching somewhare, probabley on front passengers side or the wires are mashed into the frame causing a short. i would investagate all the light wiring on the passenger front and tape up any exposed wires. a crushed socket can also cause this.
