so.... side marker lights are out or head lights are out.... the post is a bit ambiguous...

so... double check...

fuse 6 - 20A - Park/Stop/Turn lamp, LR and RR, Park/Turn lamp, LF and RF
fuse 7 - 10A - Low Beam, Headlamp Left
fuse 8 - 10A - Low Beam, Headlamp Right
fuse 21 - 15A - Fog Lamp Relay
fuse 22 - 15A - Park Lamp Relay
fuse 23 - 15A - High Beam Relay, Headlamps

some other things to try
disconnect the battery (this is important)
back at the fuse/junction check all the plugs going into the fuse/junction box as best you can for damages and disconnections, if you feel up to it, unplug and carefully plug back in each connector one at a time, this will 'reseat' all the connectors

i had many weird and inconstant issues in my 2012 focus, i would be driving along and something would malfunction, reseating all the connectors in the BCM fixed my issues
