Static Simulation ERROR

I'm student product design in the university of Antwerp. We have a school assignment where we have to use the solidworks simulation tool on a product. In this chase it's a car jack. The problem is when I try to run the simulation an error pops up saying: "The Iterative Solver stopped.  "The solver has numerical difficulties. Model may not have adequate fixtures No results saved." In the screenshots below you can see the used contact sets and fixtures. I also used mechanical mates in the model (see screenshot 4). My teacher told me that this could cause the problem.

Can someone help me?

Thanks in advance!
