    you mention your security light thats for the PASSLOCK SECURITY SYSTEM. i didnt mean an alarm. I believe theres issues with the system not only or yours but other models as well. Why was the engine replaced in the first place if I may ask? does your key have a chip in it or not?

    check all electrical connections and grounds make sure they are clean and secured specially batt to starter since it sounds like the culprit with the light issue. make sure all fuses are not blown maybe something shorted out thru the process. Changing an engine is a lot of work and attention to details. I would suggest taking a break for a few mins and go back go thru the process again to make sure everything was put back together correctly. If everything checks good and your back to the security light being on, i can help with that. good luck
