sticky back tile question

I am putting sticky back tiles over an existing vinyl floor and am having a problem in some spots. Some of the tiles are not sticking, but most of them are.
The existing floor was cleaned 3 times in a row to make sure there was no dirt, grease, etc.

What can I do to make them stick? Any thoughts? or am I out of luck?

We laid some self adhesive tile last year.
90% was Ok
I was told we should have primed the wood floor prior to laying the tile.
We put them in a camp, so they are still the same way.
We did not try the prime before laying theory, but it might work.
