Ok...thanks guys !! Looks like I got them all in correct positions at least. Plugged everything in and NO CHANGE ! All running, parking and tail lights still coming on as soon as battery is connected .
Crazy part is that there are NO fuses in the fuse box !!  Where the F are they getting power ???  Guess we'll keep digging :(

So I just went out and disconnected the fuse block completely. Hooked up battery, No interior or frt running lights ,but rear side markers and tail lights still coming on !  This is frigging crazy !!

I don't know if your car even has one but if it does try a new emergency flasher fuse. Or just pull it and see what happens.

Have you confirmed that both sides (IE: both connectors when they are plugged in) of the "4 port" connector have the same wiring color combinations coming out of them. More concerned with the 3 female/1 male 4 port connector at this point, but maybe check the others while you are at it.
Instead of being part of the problem, be part of a successful solution.

Bill, we have discovered that the yellow/black tracer and the Black are in fact crossed in the new fog light harness that goes to the engine bay. Discussed with Pete , he indicated that it was a common issue with these harnesses, but makes no difference . 
Rear lights getting power with the fuse block completely unplugged.

If memory serves me correctly, I believe that the AMP circuit is the only live feed that would bypass the fuse block. That would be the first thing I would be tracing at this point in time. Again, per my earlier post above, I do feel your frustrations.

Not at all Pete, you discussed with owner, and if those wire colors being reversed make no difference , we're on to other things. We'll find it eventually, probably something stupid..

Just want you to know I stand behind any wiring I sell.
