U2108 CAN-BUS no Communication with ABS/TC B-08
P1615 Wrong Vehicle ID from Body Control Module C-40
P1616 Wrong Vehicle ID from Instrument Control Module C-40

First one have a look at the sensors on the front wheels.
Last 2 sound like it's had an engine swap ?

sorry to ask but you've checked vin/numberplate/engine numbers match yeh?

Sounds more like it has something to do with the "reconditioned" ecu.

Grasping at straws, the fact it runs a bit, cuts out then won't restart kinda hints at heat having something to do with it.

Do you get a mil light? (without unplugging the cam sensor rolleyes)
