Hi there,

did you swap the ECU as well, check this and do a scan, you may have to re program the security system. The ecu may not recognize the key you are using.

Hi there.

If there is a key reader on the ignition switch this will have to be replaced with the unit from the second car or you may be Abel to re program it.
