Fingerprint Sensor Issues with Confidence & Print

Hello everybody, I have previously made a post regarding my fingerprint sensor. Unfortunately, my issue has not been solved. I am making a PC Login device with the fingerprint sensor which simply inputs a Keyboard.print with the password.

With this, in the serial monitor it seems to only read out the confidence as one number and give back on only ID # as 0 even though it is registered as something different.
Below is a pic of the serial monitor and the code. Thank you.

P.S It may be worth noting I am using an Arduino Pro Micro (Leanardo)
