Has the light been on every since the engine was replaced?

I believe so. Its still with the mechanic. He said light goes on after a few seconds. Replacing alternator didnt fix. I brought this car had it for 1 day and ao far the bill is well over 3000.
Please help.

I have seen a similar problem with an engine that has been replace because someone did not get the ground connected correctly to the engine.

They have already checked this several times along with the wiring harness.
They have tried diff ecus and alternators. They have now ordered a new genuine alternator to see if that fixes it.
