My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

If the old engine harness was shorting out the circuits to the DME now that the harness has been replaced it is possible the new DME was already damaged due to the harness that was on the vehicle before it was replaced.I have seen this before when a DME is replaced before the shorted wiring harness and this damaged the DME to where I had to replace it again.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete

Hi Pete.
How can I know that for shore? because the old and the new one give the same codes.
An other thing is that it started with the old computer but wont start after running a while it must be cold to start again.The dealer says to change the servo motor after that it do not start again. After that the dealer told me to change the computer no start than the wire harness no start.

Hi Pete
Yes all the last code are trowed before and after all those changes.
But it started with those codes but after replace the servo motor it did't start again
that is why I change the motor harness the LH& RH harness also

Is there an alternate code number coming up with any of these codes set here at all as some of these codes are not showing up on my code list?

Let me know,thanks Pete
