early 99 engine into a 2002 truck, check engine light with no codes?

Hey guys, I swaped an engine from an early 99 truck into a 2002 chassis and now I always have a check engine light. There are no codes though, at least with the code reader I am using. I am using the stock 2002 computer. The engine seems to run well without any problems.

What could cause the check engine light?

Before you actually start the engine, when you turn the key to on, does the light come on for a second, then turn off? Or is it on the entire time?

I think it's on the entire time. Doesn't a check engine light normally come on when you switch to run then stay on until the engine is running?

If I remember correctly, when you turn it on, it should light up, then when you start it, it should stay on for a second, then turn off. Then if there are problems, it should light back up. I need to go out and see what mine does. I know that they are supposed to turn on with the key as a way for smog techs to know that the light works and you just didnt take out the bulb. I've see that more than 1 time working there.

Does anyone have any insight on this? How can I scan to find out why the light is on?

Did you use the intake spyder from the E99 trk? If you did, the lack of intake air heater could set a code... need more details on what was used from the later motor or older one.

The entire 99 system was used, so there is no intake air heater. Should that code show up with a regular scanner? I am not seeing any codes.

A lot of scanners won't read the codes on our trucks. You may have to go to continuous memory to see the codes. AIH is a soft code, won't set cel. Is the WTS light coming on as usual?

The wait to start light comes on and does seem to work properly. Truck starts well, even in the cold. How do I go to the continuous memory for the codes? What scanner do I need?

The one at oriellys can do it if you go to the continuous memory test, its usually with the koeo and koer tests. I was asking about wts light to make sure the pcm isn't fried and just throwing the cel.
