WDDGF54X58F169060 checking with MBII scanner no problem.

ok sounds like the SAM module is going into consumer protection mode where it shuts off accessories to keep the battery voltage up.

cause could be a charging system issue where the alternator or cabling to the battery excessive drop in voltage, battery itself , or battery sensor.

MB scan tool is it the factory one or aftermarket?

any U code is a communication issue and something to do with the exterior illumination which may play a part when the engine was replaced.

i would check your connections and ground wires to the chassis make sure that they are clean and tight
