Whe you replaced the computer you set off the security system. Turn the key off for 10 seconds. Crank the engine real quick, and watch for the security light to start blinking. When it does leave the car alone until the light stops blinking. This should take between 10-30 mins. When it goes off, turn the key off for 10sec. Then try to start it. Let me know what happends

You have a security code in the system. Any time you disconnect a pcm for the vehicle you set off the security. It needs to be reprogramed to finish and more diagnose on the vehicle.
