The four little ground wires on the thermostat ground the whole ECU system. Make sure they are really grounded. If the bolts holding the thermostat cover to the housing or the housing to the engine are rusted, there could be poor contact.

Once it is running there is a way to modify ECU to make it work as a manual and not throw code 19.
