    If it’s not the problem, it’s surely a good place to start.

    Got access to a multimeter? Verify all those wires with red heat shrink on the ends are connected. If they are just get a bolt and nut and bolt them all together and wrap liberally with black tape.
    Then this weekend take @blairandgretchen advice.

    Didn’t think of that.

    It’s just a connection block - right?

    Looks like it to me.

    Edit: Of course I never claimed to be a mechanic, but I am fairly good with electrical so...
    If I randomly seen that I would think nothing of it being a connection block, but vehicles do their own things.
