I am not sure what technique you have employed for measuring currents but I would just probe the wires when disconnected that feed the power to the connector with the multi-meter set to - DC volts 0 to 20 and the other meter's lead to a grounded point.

This will tell you which wire is operating which light filament. The voltage readings will pulse with the flasher being signaled while providing a steady reading when the running lights or brake light is being activated.

On the lead that provides no voltage - switch the meter to continuity and it should buzz showing this wire to be a ground back to the battery via the frame or engine,

As far as the connector's function - it is mainly for assembly and repair of the systems and sub-systems rather than an electrically functional element in the circuit.

Go ahead and by-pass the connectors if your plan is to leave the wiring in a minalistic and simple form.
