Did you do the engine replacement or a shop?

Sounds like a short/bad ground. Maybe something in the starting circuit is loose or in hooked.

I did the swap and what ground cables should I be checking for? We're are they? I checked a few but all seem to be bolted on nice and tight I'm all out of options but the car does turn on because Incan turn it on with a screw driver by touching the bolts on the starter so the car is fine. Thank for all your help

Hmm with that bit of info you might have a wiring harness issue although I'm no expert at 4.6's or wiring. Sounds like the key is not talking to the starter, maybe an anti theft issue(pats)..
Wish I could be more help.

If its the pats I don't think a new key will fix it. I think it's a programming thing for the ecu.. I'm sure someone else will chime in..

If its the PATS system,,the antitheft light will flash rapidly when you turn the key to start

I assume only the dealer to be honest. Autozone wouldnt carry pats stuff so dealer sadly is the only option

i believe you still need to take it to a dealership to have everything married together so PATS will work with the new parts. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

I didnt have to to be honest i replaced the part and turned key and haleluya or however its spelled lol it started up gine havent had any issues for over a year and a half and counting

---------- Post added at 12:16 AM ---------- Previous post was at 12:15 AM ----------

Not too sure on the used one to be frankly honest

---------- Post added at 12:19 AM ---------- Previous post was at 12:16 AM ----------

Used scares me on that piece due to the fact its a vary fragile circuut any crack causes a break in the necessary resistance circle and u would be back to step one. On this issue i would do dealer. However have u looked into 2 slow flashes of the pats? Its a code saying whats wrong in the pats system if i find it ill post link up

Maybe, I don't really know. It's worth looking into. It might save you a few bucks in the cost of the part. I'm sure you know dealer parts are $$$.

Do you happen to have a remote start kit or an aftermarket alarm system?

Good question azure....would be nice to know if it does....plus how many flashes does it give per second would help to finding the cure

Its probably a dealer item,,usually the light flashes rapidly when you have a problem with that system,I would check the fuses and relays first,,check the PATS fuse,,and pcm fuse,,it may have a couple of pcm fuses..If you have a meter or test light you can test them without removing them,,the fuses that is..Use your owners manual

Are all those fuses under the dash or are they in the engine bay?
