touch id and dock replacement


I ve just encountered a strange issue... I replaced the dock connector on an iphone 5s (this is the first time im fixing one) and the touch id sensor stopped working... In the menu it says an error occured, and sends me back to main menu. Im sure i didnt tear the wire, and the button works fine. I was thinking maybe its the part of apples unbeatable security for touch id, which ensures no 3rd party hardware can intercept the scan..??

Please help!
