Sounds a bit of a nightmare! When you say they have placed wires, do you mean on the battery fuses? Maybe there is a blown fuse there they are trying to bodge.
Reading your first post, you have no tail, reverse, fog or brake? But you do have indicators? And you said no gadgets? So no fuel gauge, windows, central locking?
On the JTD, just have a quick look at the battery wires that are under the air pipe. I have seen them break but from memory (not always good) I think it is just the wire that goes to the starter.
Check the back of the main fuse box (drivers side) where the main power leads connect.
If I think of something else I'll let you know! But can you give me a list of everything that doesn't work please
