comment 2006 Solstice - car won't turn over following engine replacement
If the TDM (theft deterrent module) is not happy, it won't send the fuel enable message to the PCM. It might be unhappy for some reason. I don't know that there is much you can do to troubleshoot this without some expensive hardware. Any off the shelf bypass solutions are going to require a working key already paired to the TDM. You might try jumping the starter relay terminals (check the diagram on the relay) while the key is inserted and turned just to confirm that the fuel system is not being enabled.

How do you know the fuel pump is not being activated? Are you using the PCM from the blown engine or the one from the new engine? I suppose both engines were LE5 Ecotecs? Is that correct?

comment Where is the battery located on a Chevrolet Cobalt and how do you change it?
You could go either way, but I'd suggest following the manual if possible. If you need to jump the vehicle and the trunk is better positioned than the engine bay...any port in a storm.
