right handlebar controls and radio not working (02 e/glide classic convert r/glide)

I'm doing a conversion on a 2002 (carb) electra glide classic to a road glide. Pretty much got everything back together. I raised the bars and ran internal wires, just extended them yesterday and connected to the interconnect harness. I (obviously) took the interconnect harness out and out of excitement I didn't label the connectors from what I have figured out seems to work, but the right controls do not function and the radio does not power on. I double checked ohms on the right controls and wire placement on the deutsch connector. And still nothing.

The interconnect harness seems to have a couple things that I can't figure what it goes to. There is a triangle shaped deutsch connector (which isn't the one that connects back to the main harness) and there is a 4 pin connector on a close branch to the triangle (also close to headlight and front signal/(former)spot light)

Fuses are in order (working) too.

When power is on and I connect and disconnect the right bar controls I hear a clicking on the left side (relay?) Electrical cover near the fuses

Right side signals work fine.

Tested all with rear signals and lights unplugged and plugged in.

This Electra glide classic had a touring pack with an amp which was connected to the interconnect harness which I eliminated as I am not running the tour pack.

Had a cruise control sensor on the throttle cable which I switched out with a standard cable as this bike is carb, but I just wrapped the plug connectors and tied them under the tank.
