When it keeps blowing fuses, that indicates a dead short. I would start by pulling the tails again, and checking the wiring, just to make sure it is not pinched, or cut.

Recheck the bulbs. Might have a bad shorted bulb.

shouldn't unless your talking about illumination.

are you 100% positive that there are no wires pinched behind your tails? it'* very easy to do been there done that. depending on the wire(*) pinched they will affect your parking lights to include dash instrumentation illumination, directionals, and reverse lighting
