is there a way to make it shift harder or has something gone wrong

If you don' tell or show us what you have done there is no way we can tell what you have done. There are some really smart people on here but none of them have crystal balls.
Check all connections and resistance with a metre, tell us what you connected to where and get back to us.
Did you count the pin numbers from the right direction?

Yeah you don't really want it on all the time. It can get quite annoying when your just trying to have a relaxing drive, or your in traffic... will probably end up with neck problems after a year of use :P
