Pearl. I have a 2003 tahoe 5 3. I changed the engine out

Customer Question

Hi Pearl. I have a 2003 tahoe 5 3. I changed the engine out with another 5.3, swapped all sensors over and now it won't turn over. The dash goes black when the key is turned to the start position. The security light is illuminated steady in on and off positions. Relearn key procedure doesn't work as the light never goes off.
JA: The mechanics have tons of experience in that area. Are those all of the "symptoms"?
Customer: Key fob no longer locks or unlocks doors.
JA: Anything else I can tell the Chevy Mechanic before I connect you two?
Customer: Everything is reconnected but coil packs.
JA: Got it. Let's get this figured out. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Chevy Mechanic about your situation and connect you two. You'll be on the road in no time.
