WIRE_3 is an INPUT pin, not an OUTPUT pin. You can’t “write” the value to LOW. The purpose of an input pin is to read its value to see if it is shorted to ground or not. If WIRE_3 is connected to ground (by a wire), then digitalRead(WIRE_3) returns LOW. If not, digitalRead(WIRE_3) returns HIGH.
if you are trying to use WIRE_3 as an output, then you need to set pinMode(WIRE_3, OUTPUT).
Are you saying that the clock worked correctly when you received it?
I think your wires are not connected well. Make sure each terminal on the right side is connected to ground. All four terminals on the left side are at ground. Use a multimeter to ensure that all terminal blocks are at ground when all wires are attached.
