Changed front panel, battery indicator changes & turnes off randomly
I changed the front panel unit of my ipad air. When I turn it on now, the ipad turnes off automatically after a few minutes. Also, the battery indicator changes between 1% and 100%.
The repair worked well except for step 41 when I reattached the new front panel. I had the same problem as other commentators discribed: The cables of the new panel seam longer than the ones of the old one and “this side of the digitizer keep popping out.“, as @camerd33 discribed it as well. I don’t think this is what causes the problem with the batterie, though.
In step 35 I put two playing cards in between the battery and the logic board. May that have damaged the connection?
I did not reopen the ipad yet as I was hoping someone could give me a hint on what to look for specifically, once I do reopen it.

As @hootonberg suspected I might have nocked out a component, I looked into my tools again and found this little square thingy of which I attach two pics. Might that be something that is now missing in the Ipad? Sorry for coming back to that question only now again.
