It's telling you to service the Electronic Stability Control module. you may have a broken wire/corroded connection that is affecting the system. I see a lot of this in Minnesota with the salt. Be sure the shop uses dielectric grease on the contacts so the problem does not persist.

Other systems that may be affected include: cruise control, push-button start, gear shifter, and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system. Dealers will replace the brake light switch to correct this concern. ... The stop lamp switch may fail, affecting many vehicle systems including ...
That's actually good news, that it turns over normally. It could be that the plug wires aren't in the right locations, it could be that there isn't any fuel getting into the engine. A local parts place should have a spraycan of "starter fluid" they can spray into the air intake that will at least help it to start if there's spark.
They might want a set of new spark plugs if the replacement engine has been sitting for a long time, too.
Esta senal se refere a Sistema de Control de Traccion (TCS - Traction Control System) y va enlazado a la electronica y sensores del Control Electronico de Estabilidad (ESC - Electronic Stability Control), en ambos casos, sera necesario revisar conexion de cables de los sensores y pasar un escaner detector de fallas para leer los codigos de fallo almacenados en el modulo correspondiente.
if it happens again have the code pulled from the computer before clearing it out of the system.that is the only way you will know what the problem is and how serious it is.also have the charging system and battery checked.
Take it back to where you got it and make them refund your purchase price. If they refuse and you finianced it go to them, There a law called "The Lemon Law" that makes it unlawful to sell something like that. Sounds like you sure bought one. Don't do anything to it just get hold of the place where you bought it and tell them to come get their junk out of your yard!
It is a faulty MAP sensor, or Manifold Absolute Pressure... It is a sensor that tells the fuel injection computer how much fuel to use... Common symptoms are: 1. Check engine light comes on and stays on 2. Another light that looks like the back of a car with squiggly screech marks comes on and off (faulty MAP sensor) 3. Kind of odd feeling to the way it drives, similar to transmission symptoms 4. Difficulty starting engine, especially in cold weather 5. Reduced fuel efficiency
Check the obvious, if the battery has corrosion on the terminals clean it off with some coke. It could also be your alternator. If you hear a clicking noise when you try the key to restart after a stall it might be your starter motor. Or just tell them to pull the code at the dealership and it should greatly narrow the problem. Thats standard at the Firestone I go to.
