Exclamation Parking Light Error, Please Help!

I just purchased some Depo Angel Eye Headlight housings. They worked perfectly fine until the lightbulb icon popped up in the dash a few days after. Then things got weird, sometimes one parking light would go out and when I'd use the blinker for that side, & it would hyperblink even though the light was out! I know aftermarket headlights cause alot of errors, but is there anything I could do to fix this? I just turned on my car a while ago and both parking lights are out. My angel eyes and HIDs work fine though. Sometimes the parking lights just start working out of nowhere but I want to fix this!

Hi! You can try to code it out. The car automatically checks the bulbs when its hot/cold.

Well, shouldn't you check codes?

But assuming your connections are good, you know what's malfunctioning.
