Post ground buss help

ive recently had problem with my heater radio not coming on ive checked the ground busses on both sides they didnt look corded but i cleaned them anyways and it worked for a lil bit but not right after i cleaned them. on the driver side i snipped the ground buss off and tied all the wires together and still nothing. i examined all the wires they seem to be fine to my eyes. i noticed there is 4 sets of wires on the driver side each with a ground the bundle of wires with the skiniest ground turns on the interior lights whenever i touch them any of the other grounds.
i was wondering if anyone had suggestions or someone could tell me which bundle of wires are which so i could pinpoint the problem also it seems like my fuel filter or pump is bad but doing some research says its most likely the ground i just wanna get that fixed before i drop the tank. fuel filter isnt hard to check ill look at that in about 5 mins

Moved to electrical for better visibility.

Zane...

Get a DMM (digital multi meter) and check the continuity of each one. If you've gotten water inside the car, of any valume; you may have to pull the seats and carpet up. There are a couple of connections on the floor board under the seats that are susceptible to rotting out.
