I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

Did you use the same year engine as your original

Have you checked for voltage out of the ignition switch yet

Is the immobilizer light on or flashing

Is this an automatic or manual transmission

And what size engine

Please remember that I am not there and therefore may need to ask for more information at times
