    The reason it was not working is probably that the door is jammed or out of line. When it is adjusted the lock will work. Try shaking the door vigorously by the door handle while turning the lock. Just put everything back together the way it came off.

    I would go online and find videos for: How to assemble a deadbolt lock. I think you have partly disassembled the deadbolt and not the normal part of the lock? You can find out how to do nearly anything with Youtube videos.
