Default 2005 saturn vue no spark condition. Replaced icm spark plugs cps

I have a 2005 saturn vue which just recently had a motor put in it. I have checked all related fuses and relays. Replaced icm spark plugs and CPS. Still I am not getting any spark. Does anyone have any idea what is going on.

1-Is security (Passlock) flashing quickly with ignition ON and while starting? Passlock flashing means its enabled and actively disabling injector operation as part of factory theft deterrent protection. Security normally cycles on and off during starting.

2-A simple and quick test for fuel or spark failure is to spray staring fluid into the throttle body and startup. Either the engine starts up (indicating a fuel issue) or not (indicating an ignition issue).

3-At ignition on time, the fuel pump runs for two seconds then shuts off but long enough to generate pressure. Removing the fuel test valve cap and depressing the valve stem should have fuel spray out with force (use a rag to catch fuel). Normal pressures are between 50-60 psi. This checks for fuel and pressure, not injector operation.

Shouldn't the place that put the motor in be the ones figuring this out?

Was it running after the swap and then suddenly quit? Or has it never run after the swap? Like the poster above stated, listen for the fuel pump.

It's getting fuel. Replaced cps, icm, and all related fuses. It just no spark. Passlock is not active and motor did work before. It came out of a saturn ion. 2005.

Make sure you have a good ground connection between the engine and the chassis. Check your engine wiring harness (more specifically the wiring going to the coil pack and ICM) for damage.
