Cavity A= Oxygen sensor Low (usually TAN wire)
Cavity B= Oxygen sensor High (usually Purple wire)
Cavity C= Ground for heater element
Cavity D= Ignition power for heater
In newer vehicles the ground wire gets replaced by a control signal from Powertrain Control Module so the heater can be controllered instead of just turned on with ignition.

Purple wire is the signal wire.

That is completely normal. It's more of a multi-colored LED light show than anything else.

how is that normal when its bouncin all over the place?

Because the O2 sensor readings are all over the place. The gauge is just relaying that mess of data.
