Question Fogs, sidemarkers, and license plate lights not working after installing LEDs?

Hi all,

On Halloween I installed a new LED dome light and LED license plate lights (not housings) and later that night I realized my fogs, sidemarkers (which are LEDs as well), and license plate lights all weren't turning on. I'm unsure as to what may have happened, but I've tried some things out.

Firstly, I removed the license plate lights assuming they would be the culprit. Unfortunately, that didn't seem to turn any of the lights back on. Hm. Then I tried checking the fuses for my fog lights, and the connection was still intact. Okay, so if it's not the fuses, what else could it be? I was suggested by a friend that it may be because all of the LEDs that I have (now that I'm fully amber-less) may be siphoning too much power and had shut off other parts of the lighting system. It seems reasonable, but I am not sure if that is the case.

Anybody have any idea as to what may have happened and what I can do to fix it? It seems like such an odd problem to have especially if the fuses aren't blown. I haven't checked if the bulbs in question have blown, but it also seems unlikely considering they're brand new (LED sidemarkers only installed a few weeks ago). I'm able to contribute any information you guys may need.

I appreciate all feedback, thank you guys!

i think you will need to install a led hyperblink module...

i switched my turn signals to switchbacks and require the hyperblink module to run them
