I would surgest that you buy the haynes manual for the sierra, it will give you a specific wiring diagram for your particular model as they all differ slightly.

Other than that someone may have the codes you are looking for.

I did get kinda lost to begin with there are some ciruits im unsure about I hope to find out about them soon

Oh its quite easy to work them out if you have the manual. Look for the key saying what each fuse is then the ones you don't need ie c.locking remove the fuse and chop all the wire off.
The same goes for the relay holders with nothing in them cut off the wires from the back or push the holder out with a screwdriver. Be carefull as one of my empty holders had a piece of metal to connect the pins so it looked empty but was doing something.
Keep the wires you cut off as you always need a bit once you've binned them.
I also kept the main heater feed (from the fuesbox) and after choping the wiper lead off I soldered it back on as i'm undecided if i'm going to keep them or not.
I think its easier to make up your mind on the last two when you put the loom back in.
Hope that helps a little bit
