Green needs to go to a 12V power source.

I have 6 hellas on my jeep and I connected all my power supply wires to the wires running to the turn signal/ running lights so whenever I turn my running lights on the switches activate

Right, that's the power for the lamps.

The green wire is power for the switch. It obviously has a much lower draw but it still needs some juice.
