Hello so the Transmission...

Hello so the Transmission control module was swapped in my can and now I am unable to start it. It doesn't crank at all. As soon as I hook up the battery the alarm goes off and I get a service stabilitrak. I have done some reading and see that the 2010 terrain is part of GM global a architecture and swapping a tcm from another vehicle is not supported and will result in a no start no crank condition. I think this is my issue, my question is how do I fix it?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuel supply? And are all the spark plugs working?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your GM?

2010 gmc terrain

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Terrain yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes
