Electrical Issues....

I just bought a 1995 CCLB with 162XXX Miles starts and runs fine with a "toter" flat bed. When i bought it the abs light was flashing, it would flash 16 times including the long pause then start the sequence over again. Thought no big deal easy fix... Well on the drive home the battery light started coming on along with the abs light. When i would get it on it the battery light would shut off then come back on once i let off. Got it home started looking and found out the hazards dont work and the brake lights dont work when the pedal is pressed. I found loose and broken wires for the brake lights.
Then when i shut it off there are two lights on the bottom left of the instrument cluster that will flash one says fuel reset and the other is a battery with "AMP" in the middle of it. When i lock the doors the no longer flash and then when i unlock it they start flashing again.
Also when i turn on my left turn signal the "Fuel Reset" flashes the same time the blinker does.
For the ABS light i still have cruise control and my speedo is on as compared to GPS.

Question 1: Would the loose and broken wires cause the ABS light to flash like it does?

Question 2: What does the fuel reset and battery with "AMP" in the middle mean?

I know i am leaving some stuff out if i can think of it i will add on.

Thanks

What does the dash volt gauge read when you first start it up, and then after the glow plugs have cycled off? Check at idle and revved up.

One simple possibility is a loose belt. Revving it up spins the alternator faster, enough to turn off the light. Check belt and tensioner.

Never heard of the other lights, not even any recollection of them being in the owner's manual. Now you have me curious to look at our two '95s. Does the truck have factory remote and/or factory anti-theft?

Volt says "r" on the meter doesn't really say current but all the same I suppose. Here is the pic of the lights that flash.

Is this before or after the glow plugs have cycled off?

After.... it also climbed to inbetween the r and m of normal. I cleaned the battery terminals and still no change. I also fixed the abs light. It was a blown fuse under the dash. Didnt find the first 3 times I checked fuses. but now I dont have tail lights on tbe truck I do have tail lights on my camper. Checked the fuses again and nothing is blown....

Yes. Some of the side runner lights work on the truck. I am thinking its a loose connection but have used the DMM and all ohms out correctly. Possible intermitten short?

Do the brake lights, rear turn signals (or emergencies) or reverse lights work?

OEM or aftermarket trailer wiring?
