As title states.
5L T5 conversion wont start. Everything is plugged in. Using a manual loom and computer.
It doesnt attempt to turn over at all.
Whats the go?
Would I still need to bridge the auto park sensor?

The computer and BCM were switched over?? or is the new new ECU linked to the cars original BCM?
I'm Guessing this is for your 1995 VS V8 Executive?

Would have been quicker to just try bridging the park neutral switch than it would be to start this thread lol

Thats what my money is on

It was. Decided to try plugging in the whole lever assembly. Worked.
Drove it up to the road then starter went nuts and a small fire happened.
Exhaust burnt the power to the starter. Now shes stuck nose first, front wheels in gutter.

Currently waitin' for a mate.
His gonna help me push it back and watch it roll down the driveway into the garage.
Tomorrow i'll check fuses and replace the power wire. Also remove the bracket that holds the power wire and exciter.
Was very pissed off that this happened.
Spent so long on it to get this far.

Also, she's playing funny buggers.
Interior light is staying on but goes brighter when a door is opened.
No reverse light.
That's all I have noticed so far...
