1996 Oldsmobile 88 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 100k + miles
Hey guys. Here is the story.
The '96 Olds 88 had the L36 3.8l v6. It spun a rod bearing, so I snatched the supercharged L67 3.8l v6 from a 1996 Buick Riviera.
I re-used the olds harness (Only a couple minor modifications, and I am federally licensed aircraft mechanic.A.K.A. I promise my wiring is correct).
I swapped the engine, transmission, passenger side axle, and PCM. I also took the keys from the Buick.
Everything is installed, according to the pinouts I found on a Fiero forum the PCM's for the 2 cars are supposedly identical (So no re-pinning necessary. Supposedly).
At the moment it cranks but won't start. It's getting spark, there is fuel in the rail, however the injectors aren't firing, and it will hit and run for a second on started fluid.
This leads me to believe it's the passkey system.
What I did was got a new key made which fits the Oldsmobile lock cylinder, but with the resistor pellet matching the Buick. In my theory, this should allow the lock to turn, and also send the correct signal to the Buick PCM. (PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong on ANY of this)
I found the generic re-learn online somewhere (Start, key to run for 10 min, security light goes off, repeat 2 times) BUT my security light doesn't go off after 10 minutes or after 2 hours.
I guess (So long as the rest of my story sounds right) my question is this:
Is the re-learn the same for the '96 olds 88 and the '96 Buick Riviera?
And if it is the same, why won't the security light go off so I can do it?
I'd also LOVE to see the PCM pinouts of both cars so I could make sure (The pinouts I found were labeled as "1996 PCM's L36 and L67" as if they were 100% identical, but I wonder if the Buick might have an extra wire I need to add or change.
have the same problem?
