At the Main LUVTruck.com page you will find the information section that has a wiring diagram for your truck in PDF form.

Have you replaced or checked your voltage regulator?

The wiring on these little trucks can drive you nuts, but I quess you already know that! Like you have been already informed, there is a very small wiring diagram in the Luv Manuals. But if this doesn't work I have a suggestion? I have access to all of the wiring diagrams from virtually any car or truck made in the last 30 years. (these are strictly wiring diagrams,) I take the book and make a copy (ies) of the wiring diagram I need, then take this to a copy center and blow it up to working size, sometimes I have a wiring diagram that covers the whole top of a car! These cost about $25.00 with postage. Not exactly legal because of copyright laws but it works!
You could do the same thing with the stock wiring diagrams in your Luv manual.
Personally due to the complexities (and resulting failures) of the stock wiring systems I have frequently swapped out the stock alternator to a one wire type and done completely away with the regulator and stock alternator. Of sourse this requires a voltmeter installation since the stock alt light no longer functions, plus you have to change the wiring to the fuel pump from the relays located on the right front fender. Let me know if I can be of any help on the above. Meanwhile Good Luck
