Did you use a new pcm? That is a must. Did you have it flashed? That must be done for it to run

Canot use used computers on obd 2 cars. There is a vin mismatch that prevents the vehicle from running. It may or may not take a flash but must be flashed. A used car junkyard will tell you anything for a sale
