If you wired the switch to the volume pot rather than the output jack then it is entirely possible that the pot was damaged by excessive heat. You can try turning the pot to max volume and jumper the two lugs that aren't grounded and see if it gives full output again. That should tell you if the pot is to blame.

Hey guys, installed my killswitch but having a bit of an issue.
Originally I wired it by cutting the guitar output/input cable in half - and sticking it in there.
It worked fine, but I'm in the process of rebuilding this old guitar, so I had to do everything again.
I saw a different link, and supposedly this wiring would sound better, so I wired it like this:

The only problem now is, it's working the other way around LOL.
It's silent until I press that button and then it works.

Any suggestions?
