You need power to the stat....GREEN In most cases is for FAN,...(Y) may be (YELLOW) and in most cases is for COOLING....YOU NEED A HOT and A COMMON...."B" or GRAY may be one or the other...Just because the wires from both stat and a/c match doesn't mean they work together.
Check to see want the wires stand for from both a/c and stat to make sure they are the right one to connect together.
You need to know from the stat which color is hot and which one is common and the same go's for the a/c unit, once you fine that out connect the two color that need to be connected for hot and common.
