Hi Jmock,

When you changed the engine, the old engine had a ground strap that went to from the engine to the frame, did you transfer that over to the new engine? ( The block must be grounded for the electrical the work right).

Let me know please,

Best, Ken

Hi Jmock,

Can you try removing the serpentine belt with the alternator hooked up to see if it runs? I want to see if AC voltage being generated from the alternator is the problem.

If you changed the alternator out and checked all the system grounds and wiring, the problem could be in the computer.

Please let me know,

Best, Ken

Hi Jmock,

It sounds like even though the pcm was checked out, they might have missed something, we have checked all grounds and replaced the alternator, I would try another PCM.

Please let me know how it goes
