1997 BMW 318is Base 4 Cyl 1.9L

Engine

My engine broken a connecting rod bearing. I replaced the engine. The replacement engine will not start.

The first time tried to start the ground wire for the fuel pump relay burn. Using a code reader/rest tool showed battery disconnect. Before no spark to plugs, fuel injectors not working, and no fuel pump action. Now the engine check light come on, before I change the engine harness. I replaced the whole engine harness. What is my step to get this engine running.

Did the fuel pump burn too? I change fuel pump and the dme relay with the orginal ones. I ordered them online and so far so good. Also check the wires for the fuel pump for shorts. Now check the plug to the pump and the return pump. Next the fusible link and do a dianostic test with a good mechanic

I think was mistaken in the information I gave the sensors in the engine management of the engine haress need to be check against the benetly ELE-78-79. These wire are color coded to the dme. That might be the whole problems, I am starting to redo the engine management system. My problem s started with the same in the same way.
