I've attempted to 18v mod my EMG 81 & 85. When I finished, the guitar behaved as if there was no battery installed. I removed both battery connectors and connected 3 different batteries to the wires that the original connector usually connects to. It pops to full power for an instant then goes back to behaving like it doesn't have a battery installed.

Did I destroy the pickups?
If not, what do I do to fix it?

It's back to the original wiring, so exactly like the pic below.




They were wired in series, but I accidentally wired them backwards (black to red) the first time. Then when it didn't work I reset all the wiring to stock.
