Default No fire computer cant read tone ring

I have a 2001 cruiser and rebuilt a 2003 engine and put it in the 2001. My problem is according to ask a pt cruiser mechanic that the engine is not firing is due to the computer cant read the 2003 tone ring on the crankshaft. the 2001 crank has a different tone ring. is there any way I can make this engine work in this 2001 cruiser, possibly by changing the PCM to a 2003 or can it be reprogram to read the 2003 tone ring. Please help. I spent over $1000 rebuilding this 2003 motor and seem like i cant use it.

Changing everything over to '03 up would be extremely difficult. ECM - Wiring harness - Etc. The older PT's had a 2 plug ECM, the newer has 4 plugs, and they don't interchange.

'93-'02 computer's won't read your NGC '03 block.

Easiest is use your old '01 head on a older block.

You should have done your homework. You may be able to find someone parting and 03 and rewire everything.

Where are you located? I might be able to hook you up with a reasonably priced engine...
