So reverse what you did, leave the led bulb out or revert to the old bulb, see what happens.

 

Though some faults, e.g. the screen washer pump jamming can only be cleared by disconnecting the battery. It's not covered by a fuse, for some reason they used a 'logic fuse' that detects the fault and locks the circuit out for Good until it's killed with no battery.
