You probably damaged the U10 IC on the Home Button flex. This is what make the "button click" work or not. This is repairable but requires a micro-soldering repair on a flex cable and as such, I would not recommend it as a DIY repair.

If someone other than Apple replaces it, you will lose the touch ID feature.
