[quote="DeathRat"]Okay, lets start at the beginning again! First off which ECM (Main Computer) are you using? The 92'* or 95'*? Also which Ignition Module are you using? The 92'* or 95'*? This could be your problem, forget about that BCM it'* NOT part of this equation! My reasoning behind this is simple, The 95'* ECM & Ignition Module may require a DIFFERENT SIGNAL from the VATS system than the 92'* was programed for! There is 15 Different Resistor Codes for the VATS Keys! It may boil down to replacing the Ignition Cylinder &/or Ignition Switch from the 95'* column! [/quote

[/b]I am using the 92 ECM, the 92'* ignition module. Thanks for the info, DeathRat. You have been very helpful Unfortunately, I am having problems locating the ignition switch etal. I purchased the engine from a salvage yard 45 miles away and he purchased it from a salvage yard in Arkansas (about 250 miles aways). Will keep plugging.

Greetings all,
You were right, DeathRat; it was a wire; actually 3. We tested the wire loom and all of the wires tested OK. We took the plastic and tape off the loom and looked at each wire individually (boy, that is tedious, slow work) We found 3 wires that had bare spots; two of which were touching together (not grounding). This, apparently was causing the code 58, etc. Maybe this will help someone else.
Thanks, gang.

Yea, it just took a while. Plus my machanic was put in jail (I know, sound real bad) for a bad check. He really is a good mechanic. I took a 115 mile round trip today in it and it ran well, but not like I want. Gas mileage was poor and the check engine light kept coming on and then going off. BUT it was GREAT to have my baby back!!!
Thanks for all the help.
