Yup, just a case of some 1's and 0's not matching up. No big deal. If you have a Competent auto locksmith around, they can do it for you (for $350~500). Heck, if you have a local electronics repair place, you could simply swap the immobilizer chip from the original A/T to the M/T ecu (simple chip desolder and resolder, they need to be able to deal with surface mount chips but that's common stuff these days). For under $100 you can buy a cheap hot air and soldering station that will do the job (600f temp for the flux used) and DIY. No need to even deal with programming, which was the bigger headache IMHO.

This is a tiny little speedbump with the right knowledge, you could have it sorted in under a day if you have the right local resources.

Worst case, I can help out (just south of Atlanta, so would take shipping).

@Bad Luck
@Brian.
@Team_Jake

thank you so much for your input. I never thought of the idea of just switching the EPROM (Chips that contain the Immobilizer codes) from the auto ECU to the manual ECU. that seems 1000% easier than trying to re-program and possibly turning the insanely rare Manual ECU into a brick. I found a DIY on reprogramming that was so complex sounding, i wanted to part of that I am good with a wrench, not so much with a soldering iron.

I am taking a break from the project for a little while, I just lost interest. I will come back to it in a few weeks and get going on it again.

thanks for your support !

Update. I had some personal things going on with my depression in early to mid May and just didn't do much work on it. but I have been feeling a lot better lately, and I got my motivation back to continue working on this.

I estimate I am about 80 hours in at this point. So I got the truck started on the AUto ECU. I had to trace out all the wiring. the wiring diagrams and descriptions that I found were all written with people re-using their Auto Engine Wiring harness.

Thankfully I had saved the dash harness from the donor truck, so I was able to take it apart and trace where the Clutch switches connect to the dash harness. I then added in the wiring to my truck to mimic the manual truck's dash harness. I will document the exact connections I did so that anyone else that finds this tread in the future can copy what I did.

Now to finishing putting this back together, and then to conquer the manual ECU/ Immobilizer issue. thanks for your support everyone

I'm glad you're feeling better. One step closer to being done and coming along nicely! I'm sure having the other harness helped a good amount too

Dash harness. Those are fun to remove. Good progress. You get it back together just keep working on it..
