Installed pro start ct-3271 on a cavalier automatic. It will start but then stalls right away. Won't stay running.

Sounds like something was crossed. Check to see if fuel pressure is staying present while stall is in effect. If dropping out or spark is dropping out sounds like the factory theft is coming on. Sometimes borrowing the wrong ignition feed relays wrong resistance back to computer and will fault the system. In rare cases the new module assembly has a bad inner relay that doesn't engage.

Computers rarely fail. The diagnostic would not show anything wrong unless a trouble code is set UNLESS the diagnostic used live data vieew. Most shops dont do that . So at what RPM does it not die? How many miles are on it? Ford uses something called an idle air speed motor. They are prone to fouling.

Check you've reinstalled the wires to the correct cylinders - if you've got this wrong, then you'll have problems.
Off hand, I'm afraid I don't know your cylinder order however - sorry, you'll have to check a manual for that one (unless someone else on here knows it off the top of their head?)
Hope this helps, Sherwin
