Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hi, I am trying to make a map showing all of the parking garages in an area (Los Angeles). When I search parking in the OSM search box it goes to a place in France. What am I missing here? I've done a google search and can't seem to find an answer. Ideally I would like to be able to download a vector map of garages but I could also just grab a screenshot and trace over it.

Also, is there a way to filter for different types of parking? Open, above ground, below ground etc.

Not exactly what you asked for but may help:
You could use overpass turbo . Select the wizard and type amenity=parking , zoom in close initially to an area to check if output is ok and build and run the query and you will see those on the map. You can export the data. You can also output meta which I think may give all tags of each element. By reading the documentation you should figure out how to extract various types of parking. You can get fancy and output differing colours to results.
