Tele Neck Pickup Gets No Response from Tone Knob

I bought these original Fender tele pickups new in March.

I wired them according to the instructions. I have tried different capacitors and 2 totally different "official" wiring configurations.

The bridge works fine with the tone knob, but for the neck pickup, the tone acts like a volume control.

Check that nothing is touching anything it shouldn't be. Chances are it's miswired, a little more detail on how you have it wired would help

I just disconnected the tone for now. I will definitely revisit this issue. I am going to get the exact capacitors that My parts list requires. Is it possible that the wrong cap could produce this response ?

No. Something is in the wrong spot or grounded out where it shouldn't be.
