Volume Pot

Hello Jemsiters

Recently my tone pot on my RG570 stopped working, so I decided to buy a new Switch/Volume/Tone. The ym-50, which is the switch used on the older jems. I disconnected the other one and installed the newer one and it didn't work. My guitar has a dimarzio paf pro... a s1 and a v7. I am clueless when it comes to electronics in the guitar and desperately need some help and I want to be able to do this sort of stuff myself cause my techy is about an hour's drive and is expensive. I used a dimarzio diagram for the paf and the ibanez diagram for the other 2.

The rambling aside... must the volume pot have a capacitor? This pot doesn't.
The tone pot does... and I initally thought this was why it wasn't working. But after a bit of reading it seems the capacitor just creates resistance so you have more precise volume change. I think...

Anyway, I need to know if this is a problem so I know whether to try wiring it again or if I'm wasting my time.

Any help is much appreciated.
