No crank issue
05 Mazda tribute 3.0. Replaced all 6 plugs and
coils and installed preprogrammed computer. Car
would not crank but all panel lights come on along
with the radio. Pulled newer computer out,
concerned that it wasn't programmed right, and
stuck the old computer back in and still no crank.
Recheck your work. Did you remove the upper intake? Maybe you forgot an electrical connection or bumped a wire loose, or it has something to do with installing the new PCM. Might need some diagnostic work to figure out why at this point.
I thought the very same thing. I've gone through it 6 times and yes I had to remove the upper intake.
The anti theft light flashes continuously. Could the chip in the key been damaged from the first pcm?
I had a similar issue maybe push the key in harder all the way and while doing that try to turn it to start .
Just had this issue, turned out the key had to be placed in a certain way.
