    yellow and green are directionals, they want to get connected to running lights. For like $8 ya can buy a new 25 ft run , easier to replace the whole run then screw with repairs.

    No don't do that, it will 'fuse' both sides together, the brake lights will work but either way you go to turn both sides will flash... :cry:

    You should have one wire for each side, right turn & stop, left turn & stop.

    Maybe this helps:
