Could be a number of things mate. Does the battery have enough charge to turn over? Go back over all the wiring to make sure you didnt miss anything or bump any connections loose, sounds silly but it has happened.

From memory series 2 on both motors and wiring harness in car is original but motor harness is xr, I've checked the difference between the two and only difference is abs wire

Manual and checked relays and swapped them around with ones from working donor car relay in cab clicks but ones in engine bay don't also checked all the fuses there ok, I've got a gut feeling that I'll need to reprogram the ECM, also should mention fuel pump isn't kicking in but does work when I bridge it out at relay

going by the owners manual .. (!) is refering to a brake system malfunction? - how many wires have you connected to the starter motor? and have the connected correctly??

Everything is connected to where it should be as I left the harness on the engine when I swapped engine as gearbox stayed connected to it, it's like there is no power from cab to engine but power from battery to cab
