Default Need Help

Someone hit my left tail light in the parking lot and broke the light. It was fully functional but the plastic was gone. I went to a well known store and bought a new Left tail light (2006). Right after I installed it, my after-market alarm system, locking mechanism, and tail lights stopped functioning. The break lights, reverse lights and blinkers worked but not the running tail lights. I checked the fuses, reset the battery etc... nothing worked. I took it to the dealer and they found TIPM internal failure and also Left Rear parking light bulb socket internal failure. They replaced my alarm and fixed my locking mechanism easily, but it is going to cost $691.01 to fix the tail light issue.

Could the left tail light I bough cause this damage if it was faulty? It literally happened right after I installed it. Seems like a no brainier to me but I want to be sure this is plausible before I start barking at the people who sold me the light.

Thanks for your help

the lights should have nothing to do with the tail light assembly. It's just a housing for the lights. did you check your bulbs and make sure they're in the right sockets.
