Hi just purchased this CR-V at auction it was a stolen recovery, it didn't have keys, so I replaced steering column with barrel and key, key reader and ECU , locks unlocks, everything seems to work ok, turns over starts for a second or so then dies, I can hear the pump, disconnect the fuel line and it pumps fine, but the situation seems to be that it just shuts down as though it was no fuel, or something electrical, anyone help with a solution please
Regards Knuckles

Sounds like the immobilizer system working. If so, you'll need new Key fob(s) and they must be set up/programmed by dealer to work. This will disable the immobilizer anti-theft system and you should be able to drive on down the road!

The immobilizer is doing it's job.

It doesn't recognize your keys, so it says "no start for you" and tells the ECU to kill the engine.

You'll need to take all of your keys to a locksmith or dealer to get them paired to the immobilizer. It is not a DIY job.
