1979 ranchero light problem

Alright so I'm new here and I own a 1979 Ranchero. I have been have lots of light problems with it since I bought it. Someone had stuck a toggle switch in for the lights. He also gave me a box of spare parts and trims which I found 2 light switches and 2 pigtails. I took the pigtail that matched my light wire color for color except one wire that I didn't hook up. At first everything worked I put a new brake fuse in and what looked light a new light switch with the pigtail. All side markers, headlights, tail lights, dash lights, brake, turn and hazard all worked. Now all I have is a hot switch really really bright tail lights and fast blinkers. It melted my pigtail and its a black with orange stripe wire going to letter B on the switch. My question is why did it all work and now i have bright tail lights and fast blinkers and hot switch. New fuses where needed new bulbs installed the right way and new column was needed so shouldn't be the TSS but I notice with key on blinker on there is no clicking from the turn signal deal in the fuse box. I want all my light to work already!
