My buddy has a 1994 Grand Am GT. His car starts but will only run for 10 seconds.
His engine blew and he swapped engines. The key, ECU and radio are the same. He starts the car and the security light comes on and the car dies after 10 seconds.

Any suggestions? I was thinking it maybe had something to do with the PCM?

Since the security light comes on, there is a problem with the security, if theres a chip on the key, or there's a problem with the key cylinder cause its shutting the fuel injecters off. Looking into this might help, or it might not. Cya.
