Does everything work if you put it back how it was? If so try again.
If not... Did you disconnect the battery before messing with electrical stuff? If not then shame on you and start by checking fuses.

Maybe you connected to the wrong side of the green wire? I can't really tell, I don't remember it....

No I didn't disconnect the battery. How do I know if fuses are bad

From what I can see you cut the green wife in half when all you had to do was splice into it with the wire....

Rule #1 in Electrical... ALWAYS LEAVE YOURSELF MORE WIRE THAN NEEDED WHEN YOU CUT

Rule #2 is DON'T FORGET THE PUT THE HEAT SHRINK ON BEFORE YOU MAKE THE SPLICE

Oh yea, the reason I cut the wire at the plug so short was because I was trying to leave extra wire for the other side
