Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question. This happens because the VIN needs to be programmed into the new PCM after it is installed. If not, the engine will start and stall just like you are describing.

This is done using the factory scanner.

You could call around to the local shops in your area to see if they can do this for you.
