DBX 160A issue

I was rewiring my gear and I decided to put my DBX 160A into a new patchbaby to make room for new gear that I am about to purchase. I'm 99.99% sure I hooked it up correctly. However, once I connect it to the new patchbay, the unit freaks out. The output and gain reduction meters start to pulsate and flash. I troubleshoot by connecting another compressor into the same points. No issues. What's the deal with this?

I will not get the opportunity to mess with this until tomorrow night, so any feedback would be great between now and then.

What happens when you patch it into the signal chain ?

i have seen "signal" on the 160Xs when they are not being patched into, probably a ground loop that is completed when a patch cord is inserted into the input
