Attention trans swap now no start... HELP

i just got the af23 swap done and the thing wont start.
when i try to start the car it would even crank.
i got a remote starter button and it started for a sec then stopped.
now the passlock sym. is on and it says to service car and pwr str is on the info torn as well.
i am trying the passlock relearn right now but is that my problem?
also before i started it with the remote i could use my elm scan 5 but after i can connect to the ecu????
could that have something to do with the passlock?

any help would be awsome and thankful.

Double check the under hood wiring that you unplugged. Also, try disabling the remote starter, they are nothing but trouble on newer gm cars.

If all this checks out, it sounds like a passlock issue. Is your car pre or post recall?

i have one of those starter jumpers to turn over the engine from under the hood not the key fob remote start.
also, i have no spark.
is that from the passlock?

i disconnected the batt and took all the connectors off the pcm and tcm, blew them out then put everything back together and it started.
Ran for 8-10 min then stalled.
Turn the ign. Off and tried to start and the starter clicked then a sec later started.

Happy Re: trans swap now no start... HELP

pre.. i dont plan on doing any recalls as i bought the fix and sell.
i just took it on its first test drive and no codes or other light are on.
it runs great and shifts smoothly.
my starting problem was a bad batt..

It's free maintenance you can use as an excuse to ask more for it, but you can't be bothered?
