Default Just swaped engine, starter doesn't turn.

My first ? Is... What color is the signal wire to the starter?

I get no codes and no warnings. All fuses are good As well. There is a possibility the alternator signal wire and the starter wire got switched. Starter is yellow right?

So where I stand now... The main power cable has power but the signal wire doesn't get anything when I turn the key. Would the car be immobilized?
