Default Switches and Terminal Blocks

Well I recently watched Tjharlows video on how to make a terminal block and how to wire a switch baybus. So I wired up the terminal block exactly like the way he instructed to do so, I also managed to fit my power and ground cables (red and black) from my switch bay, (Switch Bus with Full Lighted Lens Rockers Products Model: FULL-LENSBUS [FULL-LENSBUS] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come)
to the terminal block. I jump started my pc with paperclips and itll turn on for 1 second or so and itll shut off. I have the 24 pin and GPU power and 8 pin removed, as well as my pump power removed. But I am wondering if anyone can help me? Locally would be best.

psu may need a load ....try an old HDD to power only connection for a load then try again

if still cuts out then you have a short somewhere in set-up
