I got the other ecm thats supoosebto.go.wit this engine and it.still hasnt started is there a relearn or somethin I can do??

Expert:  HondaPlatinum replied 1 year ago.
Did you swap the engine harness as well?Also doe the engine light stay on or flash or come on at all?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

No I didnt swap the harness cause I realized everything matched up but the engine light comes on and goes off like before

Expert:  HondaPlatinum replied 1 year ago.
Ok but the harness is different and even though the connectors hook up they could be for the wrong input to the ECM.Also you checked all the grounds to make sure they are secure as well as the one at the thermostat housing?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Yea I checked all grounds im not even gonna go thru all this hassle im.jus jus gonna pull the motor out n get another one that matches my engine

Expert:  HondaPlatinum replied 1 year ago.
Honestly that's the best option which I stated earlier or you will continue to have problems.
