Sliding Bolt in a Simulation

I'm trying to determine what bolt torque would be necessary to keep the plates from sliding relative to each other.

The bolt is mated using a slot mate and then converted to a bolt using the automatic connections within the simulation. When I run the simulation it fails stating there are to many numerical errors. I have tried running the simulation with both the direct sparse solver as well as the default solver. I appreciate any help you all can give.
