Hori 360 stick problems

Recently modded my Hori. For the most part it was fine until the Y button when pressed was messing with the joystick commands. So I cut the wire a reconfigured RB to “act” as Y now.

My issue now is my stick is “disconnecting” and requires me to “re-plug” in to become active again. Needless to say this is screwing me online.

I don’t wanna go back to my SF fightpad, but I’m running outta options. Can anyone offer suggestions?
