Did you get it fixed? If so, what was your issue? I am experiencing identical symptoms after an engine change.I went through and checked every connector on the wiring harness.
I checked the wire from the rack. It looks fine, it is not something I touched during the engine replacement.
I've jumped the negative battery cable to rule that out.
I'm starting to think it is the antitheft or immobilizer. Does anyone know a specific way to reset this? Im reading so many different methods online.
Correction....everything went perfectly with my engine change, I just didn't know that this model wouldn't start without a foot on the clutch, since I bought it as a project and had never driven it. I was always taught to start a manual in neutral, with a foot on the brake and that riding the clutch was a bad habit.Did you get it fixed? If so, what was your issue?
