You have to program the new computer or PCM to the car so it will start and the theft light will not come on. You need special equipment/software to do that. Most garages and or the dealership can do that for you.

Trying the turn key to on for 15min with door open then take key out for 1min then put key back in.. Now!!

I only got another computer from junk yard same service number but why would it not give me my ground pulse with junkyard computer or stock one

Because the junkyard computer isn't recognising the transponder key. So it's shutting down the engine. It's the security system. Why did you replace the original computer? Put it back in and see if you have spark and fuel. If you do it's time to run a compression test. If all cylinders test low or zero, it's jumped timing. HTH. -Jim
