door and trunk vacuum works only a few times after reconnection. on 1998 Mercedes-Benz S500

vacuum pump that located in the trunk works only a few times after I disconnected a connector and connected it again. All doors and trunk losses vacuum one after another. I though that vacuum pump creates the problem therefore I replaced it with a new one. But the problem is still occurs. Thank you.
