What is going on with the wiring? Are there individual drivers inside the modules or are you trying to drive
them all from the green module's driver (not recommended)?

They all have their own driver. And excuse the messy wiring, it's only temporary until I get my switch that will change the laser that is being turned on. (Waaaaaaaaaay easier than re-wiring)
