I'd check the oil pressure sensor (sending unit) just above the oil filter...

Yikes hopefully it doesn't have low oil pressure. That sensor was the only connecter I had to swap from the other harness I noticed that the 03 has one wire and the 02 has 3. Thanks for the help all let you know if replacing the sensor works

You'd know it if you don't have oil pressure at all.

Your swap sensor swap/wire swap probably isn't correct.

That's really weird, I thought they would have been the same. No one ever mentioned it before. I looked it up on autozone and they show the same part number.
