Question Fernandes sustainer / Signal issue

Hi all,

I have just installed a new jack barrel to my ibanez 7vwh, i have a fernandes sustainer and a kill switch wired to the ground and signal points. My problem isn't major but i've noticed when i plug the jack in i have signal for a few seconds then fades out then back in again, once its done that every works ok and signal stays solid for the duration its plugged in.

It never did this before and i'm worried i've done something, soldered something incorrectly or its just something ill have to get used to?

Any ideas or knowledge shared is much appreciated.
