Dash Light ISSUES/other lights

I have come to the realization that my toggle switch wired reverse lights are more of a pain than if they came on normally, yet i cut all the wiring out at one point because I didnt know what it was for, and it was just hanging, and now i wish i hadnt.

now when i cut it i also cut out the wiring for the 4wd light which i didnt even know it had, till i accidently grounded it out and the light came on, which then brought me to relize that... well i thinkg at least. there is also a parking brake light?
I can probably get the old reverse lights and 4wd lights working, but as far as i know the wiring for the parking light is still intact, yet it doesn't work?
suggestions?
I just think it be nice to have reverse lights come on in reverse and to know when I am in 4w or have the parking brake on, ya feel me?

God Bless
and thanks for all of your help

You could have a parking brake switch and it will be located under the handle. There were several different styles of parking brake so you will have to root around and find the switch. The lamp itself is powered and all the switch does is ground the other side of the circuit. if you find the switch, groun dit and see if the light comes on. It may well not come on.

The 4WD switch and reverse switch can be reconnected but it can be a struggle to find th right connector. Have a look at whather you have the connectors.

If you have the foot brake operated one it should look like this and the switch is on the side.
