Refer to the photo below. Notice the silver metal piece inserted into the brown plastic piece. This is the part that makes contact with the two wires. It is removable and sometimes falls out during shipping. I have found them loose in the bag I purchased.

The problem occurs when care is not taken to insert the metal piece back into the plastic part correctly, it will fit either way. It has two slots: one narrow and one wide. The wide slot must be aligned to make contact with the larger wire and the narrow slot must align with the smaller wire.

If inserted backwards the larger wire might be damage and there will not be electrical continuity with the small wire. If you find there is no continuity between the larger and smaller wires check for incorrect installation of the metal part.
