maybe rest your left hand entirely on top of all the strings & slap around the end of the neck/ between the end of the neck and the neck Pick-Up (if you have one), does that produce a sound?
It's just supposed to be a, sort of, clicking noise.

All I can think of is somewhere along the lines the electronics just aren't picking up the sounds. Maybe your amp's faulty or your pickups are faulty or something, see if you can experiment with different basses and amps.
