Just finished wiring and my bridge pup sounds like a blend of bridge and neck

Hey guys. Just finished wiring my guitar and everything is flawless(including the sound of the neck pup) except that the bridge pup sounds like its a blend between the neck and the bridge. Where would this flaw be in my wiring? No Middle pickup. No excess hum feedback or anything. Must have misplaced a wire.
Help would be awesome!

Pickups-
Bridge: Dimarzio Tone Zone
Neck: Dimarzio Humbucker from hell.

Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hmmmm just noticed when i push the selector away from the body(towards your leg) it works right. but when i let go it goes back to bad. maybe dropped a bit of solder in there or something?

firstly check as on both pups the white and black are joined, the green and ground are joined and to ground and the red is hot... sounds really patronising but simple things first.
