Hi

Switch the ignition switch to on and check the security light goes off should not flash with the ignition key in the on position or when cranking the engine .

Both year of engine are the same so not the problem .

If light is flashing you will need to reprogram the key's , if you have a diagnostic scan tool or code reader first check for codes this will confirm this for you.

If light is not flashing get a scan tool or code reader and check for codes you may have a bad sensor like a crankshaft sensor malfunction .

If you need further assistance with this issue then please get back to me with the reply box below .
This is not a one answer and done i/we will stay with you until the problem is sorted out .
Before rating poor or bad please get back to me as i'm here to help you and if i can't i will opt out so another expert can , we want you to be happy and have your problem sorted out and be a happy motorist .
After rating there is no further cost for any other question relating to this problem
Kind regards Greg..

It's a 2003 Camry with a 2002 engine just put in it . The ECU is programmed to the keys we have with the 2003 ( before swap ) , put a new cam sensor in as wel .
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Is there more than one cam sensor we change the cam positioning sensor
Toyota Mechanic: Greg, Technician replied 7 months ago

One cam sensor if only the motor was swap over and the system with the car is from old and not replaced the engine should start ,

What you need to do is get hooked up to a diagnostic scan tool and see what codes you have ,

Check and see if you have spark and if the fuel pump runs when cranking the engine if both are not working then security issue. immo activated if you have both or missing just one let me know .

I have spark. The only light that comes on is the check engine light. So it's not the key. And the fuel pump doesn't always work, sometimes it comes on and sometimes it doesn't. And the fan sometimes stays on while in the off position
Toyota Mechanic: Greg, Technician replied 7 months ago

Okay need to check for malfunction codes .

Fuel pump is working as with ignition on the fuel pump will energize only for a few seconds .

Now this is what i think could be your problem with you just changing the engine .

Now if you are using the injectors from the new engine then swap from the original, as i've seen with used engine s the injectors fitted may have been stored for a long time and sized ,

Try the original injectors that where working with the original engine .

If you have spark then the alarm system is not the problem .

The other issue could be the crankshaft sensor if this is faulty you will not get injector signal to open the injectors .

check for codes to be sure you may find a crankshaft sensor code or even a cam sensor code /

I put a new cam positioning sensor in. I haven't done a crankshaft sensor. I got it to run but if I hit the gas the throttle body won't open.
Toyota Mechanic: Greg, Technician replied 7 months ago

You need to check for codes very important.

If you don't have one then i suggest you try the bluedriver a very good higher level scan tool

used with your apple or smartphone .

Has also live data to do deeper diagnostics .

Toyota Mechanic: Greg, Technician replied 7 months ago

Okay good thank you .

First with this engine i would check the timing chain position marks, as the P0010 code is timing

issue normally set at higher rpm but is stalling after start up i would check timing with this code .

he Engine Positions System Performance Bank 2 code may have several causes:

  1. Engine timing out of sync
  2. Engine oil sludge (from lack of oil changes)
  3. Worn timing components (chains, gears, guides)
  4. Crankshaft or camshaft sensor malfunctions
  5. Wiring damage
  6. ECM software out of date
  7. ECM internal damage.

All other codes are transmission related .

This could well be a bad connection to the transmission check this first .
