make sure youre tucking the wire properly under the compartment, that is the number one thing people do wrong when closing the drive up. The little extra space this lifts up when closing is fine, its supposed to be like that. Also the correct points are soldered, but we usually block off the other points from touching. Id recommend putting some electrical tape inbetween the points that aren't soldered together incase theyre causing the issue. the clip is real its the v4c-9a , I prefer the older style myself though.
