Default Wired Up In My Evo 9, Engine Bay Plug Connection Not Lighting Up

I finished the wiring process today and when I followed the start up steps, the red plug does not light up green when the key is on the ACC 2 position. The other two plugs do light up green though. I have the ground right at the chassis ground located next to the battery on my Evo 9. I had a buddy of mine come over with his kit, bought them at same time, he has not installed yet and same situation. Is there something I am doing wrong. One note is that my kit did not come with 4mm line for jets and it is on the way now but I figured I could test the wiring and inject straight into a water bottle.
Please help.

Thanks,
Ben

Got it working. Bent the prong further out and it worked on the first try when I checked it again. Now to address the leak at the 5 port manifold.

If I remember correctly, the green light on the red connector shows the position of the magnet in the flow sensor. It may stop in a position where the the green light is not on, and sometimes is on. It's not critical. The yellow light denotes the PWM to the valve, much more useful for troubleshooting.

May I ask where the kit was purchased, with the 4mm line missing?

I ordered both kits from MAPerformance.

I know the factory inspects and weighs each box before shipping from the UK.

The hose arrived yesterday from NJ. I found it hard to believe too especially since both kits were missing them. All good now.
