Question Description

When installing a used computer, why does it allow the car to start and shut off immediately after starting.   Is the computer bad or does it have to be reprogrammed..?   One fuel injector will not fire on old computer.

You will have to reset the new computer. I also suspect that you have a faulty fuel injector. Check the repair manual on how to reset the computer.

good luck..
