I was swapping out my parking lights with LEDs and I guess I inserted them in reverse polarity. I have relays installed so I can use the parking lights as turn signals.

The relay no longer clicks now, but the rear turn signal still works, and the parking light remains on.

Relay burn out?

Are you talking about the flasher relay or relays on each light? What type of relays?

Relays can go bad, but if you have one on each light it is pretty slim chance that both would "burn out" at the same time and they wouldn't go bad from reversing anything they are very simple devices.

If they are SPDT/SPST relays they are pretty easy to test. All you need is a basic test light.

-Power goes to 30, at this point you should have power at 87a if you have a SPDT.
-connect 85 and 86, one to power and one to ground (it doesn't really matter which). Now you should have power at 87.

SPDT Relay (SPST looks the same without the 87a pin)

I don't get why it would be a connection issue though :/

Now that I think about it, the issue started when I removed the rear turn signal. Everything in the rear looks fine though, and the only thing I did in the front was change the incandescent driving light for a LED driving light.
