take out your gauges and your radio .... kidding, try to bring it to a electrical place that knows there ****, my friend has a eg and had the same problem the dash and tailights were always going out... they traced all the wires in the car and fixed the problem for $40.

sounds like you fucked up your wiring... look for any pinched wires that have to do with the parking light (dash light) wiring

did you tape up the old wires? esp the dash light source? sounds like it may be shorting out
