try resetting your computer by unplugging the battery for 15min if that does not work your computer may need to be reflashed or replaced

Was the tranny rebuilt??
Mine was rebuilt and I still can't get it to work.
I may end up with the same problems.
Did yours slide in and up to the motor over the pins easy?
