D17A2 Cranks but Won’t Start.


New Member
I bought a 2002 EX with a D17A2 swap, but had a non VTEC ECU/harness. I recently installed a VTEC ECU/harness but now my car won’t start.

I have no green key immobilizer light in the dash. I have had my key reprogrammed to the new ECU and tried to jump the fuel pump relay. Car still only cranks, NO start.

The new harness has a plug for the EGR valve, but my motor does not have the EGR. Car should still start.

Car WILL start with new harness and original ECU.

Can anyone help me, thanks.
