Re: electrical nightmare, again, closer
What you have created, inadvertently, is called a latching relay. When you feed power down the green wire it energizes the relay and the relay closes circuits and powers lights, pumps, etc. What is happening is that there is a new circuit path so that the switched part of the relay is now powering the green wire and keeping the relay energized.
What you need to do is determine which circuit from the relay is powering the green wire. somewhere along the path between the key switch and the load shed relay the green wire is shorted to another power wire, find it and this problem is solved.
