Car won't crank.... full story inside.

Here is the story -

I have a 2000 stick/v6.. it WAS a 5 speed. I had to park it ( I would go outside and start it up and let it get to running temp for the few months it was parked ) because of the secondary air pump failed and would have been failed for a emissions test because of the check engine light.

Well one of the times I went outside to try and start the car up I would get the interior lights to come on but the car wouldn't even begin to crank over, next day I went outside removed the battery and charged it up, still nothing. I got her to crank on one time since she "stopped working". Nearly cranked on one time after that.. but died off mid crank ( car also like jolted... i guess one would say )

My friend agreed to let me use his shop to remove the motor/trans to put in my 03 v6/auto. Removed the stick/v6 and put in the 03 auto/v6. Put in the new speedo & computer I still have to have the key chip from the 03 put into the 00's key which I'm not sure it can be done ? please fill me in on that ) so I can try and crank her on with the new speedo/comp in.

For the time being I have the old computer/speedo in. I've been trying to get the car to run but it doesn't wanna crank. Any clues on the issue here? besides the computer is like w.t.f about the auto trans?

Also not sure if it matters but I do have the clutch pedal assembly in still with the wire for the netural safety switch connected...

thanks for taking the time to read this... and any input you may have.
