Make sure it's seated correctly. Dumb question but did you tighten the bolt all the way down?

Then that's more than likely your problem. Make sure it is in the mounting bracket correctly and pushed all the way forward first.

Did you flip the PCM around? The plug only fits one way, you'll see the small slots on the ends of one side.

The PCM is cake on the SD, manual or not. An OBS can be a bastard...
