    What method are you using Serial ? Are these dumb r,g,b ?
    You will likely need a max485.
    For ESPixelStick Firmware . if while you were installing and you selected Pixel then you can only control WS281* or GECE type pixels .

    else
    If you select Serial , you have an opportunity to use Renard or Dmx which is favorable for dumb r,g,b using the very very limited gpio of the esp-01

    Ah , 3 leds per pixel So you are using 6 Ws2811 pixels . Should be simple enough.

    Make sure you connect to DI for data line and V+ V- to 12v .

    Did the unclipped wires on the end short ?
    Have you managed to get these to light up at all ?
    Also , why is the red and white split like that ?

    I would setup a test with the 5 pixels(15 leds) and get them working.

    I think they did on the first one at some point so I clipped them before connecting the second one .

    If they shorted , you may have killed all that were connected

    Do a very simple safe test with 1 single pixel(3 leds) brand new - not used.
    no unclipped ends !
