Is the security light on solid or flashing while you are cranking the engine?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Solid
Expert:  Mike V. replied 2 months ago.

Ok, the immobilizer has it shut down. There isn't any injector pulse which is why it will run on the starting fluid but not when cranking. You will need to have the dealer or a mobile locksmith reprogram the keys since you installed a new ecm and it will solve the problem for you.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

I replaced the ecm relay. Not the ecm. Car was running fine. Seems to want to start if I shoot starter fluid in it. Fuel pump relay and fuse are good. Car shut off while driving.
Expert:  Mike V. replied 2 months ago.

If the security light is solid, the keys lost programming. This has to be the place to start as it won't run with that light solid.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Okay. What can cause that? Only wondering because I don't want to pay to have it reprogrammed just for it to unprogram itself again.
Expert:  Mike V. replied 2 months ago.

Well, sometimes it can happen simply because you had a cell phone to close, or the battery disconnected for to long. Speed pass and some thruway passes will cause it as well. I just know as long as the lights solid it's not going to start. No way to bypass it either sorry to say.
