Thanks for posting the info and pictures. Unfortunately, I can't download the wiring diagram for a closer view. I'm having similar problems with lights, sounds and power. I identified that the connector for the large red wire under the foot pedal was broken, so I used a yellow female spade connector without insulation (not a flag connector) and attached the wire. The truck ran, but stopped intermittently, likely due to a loose connection. The plastic surrounding the large red wire connector was melting. Additionally, lights and sounds weren't working properly. Next I identified that the small red wire coming from the dash was also loose. I took it all apart again, connected both of the red wires into the spade connector, removed the plastic housing surrounding the connectors under the foot pedal, and re-attached the spade connectors. Now the wires at the shifter are getting hot and the purple one is melting when it is driven.
This is becoming a very frustrating project, but I'm sure it's easily resolved. My limited knowledge has made it worse! Is there a certain size/type of connector I should be using? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
