hey how are you

1- did you go back and checked the engine replacement work for any loose ground cables from engine to black ,a loose or not connect ground cable will cause that

2- when you jumped the wire ,tells me you ground it and you are missing a a loose ground, or a plug not connected or no ground from computer.

was the wiring harness identical and all plugged in on the new engine,all of them ,nothing plus stayed loose or no place for it to plug

Please let me know

Thank You
