Is it at the dealer? They cannot figure it out? Does not make sense.

O would start with powers and grounds to the pcm.

No used, will not run from vin mismatch.

Did you have them flashed before installing? They must be flashed for the car to run

Must be re flashed by dealer. That is the reason for your issue.
