1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / wire harness question what am i missing?

So today the 90 degree end to the wire that goes to the temp sending unit broke (red/white stripe). Original. Old wires so I thought lets get a new harness, just that shorter one plugs in by the firewall. Two reds and a middle beige colored wire. Upon closer examination i discover the following. One wire in the harness goes to the coil, one to the temp unit and the third wire (beige) no where! BUT of course the oil sending wire comes from the console and uses its own wire beige in color that wraps around the head not utilizing the wire in the "coil/temp" harness.

What am i not realizing here? Three wires go in and only two come out. thanks

See picture for the harness I want to replace (red) with the mystery center wire

thanks Royce. When you say signal switches you are referring to the sequence sticks. Correct?

Here is what it looks like to me if someone can confirm. Just speaking about the left side. It appears the power is coming from the green wire under the dash. There is a T that then jump off the green wire via a white wire and sends the power into the stick. It then appears the power should exit the stick via the red and yellow wires which would power the center and end lights. I can test the power entering the stick but it is not exiting via the red and yellow wires.

That said, and the fact that the inner most light is working leads me to believe the stick is dead. Thoughts on this logic?

i read this online "Basically, the system works as follows: when the directional lever on the turn signal switch is moved, it completes circuits that select and feed power from the flasher to the corresponding bank of rear lights. Power for the lights is fed from the turn signal flasher through the turn signal switch to the sequencer and to the inboard light on the side selected. The center and outboard tail lights are controlled by the sequencer" this makes it sound like the dynomite stick is bad if this statement is accurate........

So i get power from the green/orange stripe light which then as I said lights the inner most bulb on each side. I tried various grounds no luck yet. Wish i could test the stick itself. I'm not seeing that described any where on line just more symptomatic conclusions...

no difference with the engine running and I grounded the stick itself. Can you describe what the stick actually does that will help me diagnose.

very helpful as usual Bob. thank you. So i went exploring this morning and found many of the wires connected to the stick to be in bad shape and i repaired them. My brake lights work great but my blinkers don't only the most inside lights on each side do. No sequence. Is it safe to assume if all wires are connected, which they are, that the sticks are bad? I know they worked two years ago when i got the car after it sat for many years. Also is the main harness coming from up front to the trunk plug and play somewhere on the way back or is it a significant bit of wiring under the dash to replace it? Im considering the old while I'm here do i replace the whole harness thing... Thanks- John
