rincon 650 all sorts of problems need help

Couple months back I bought got an 03 rincon for a couple hundreds dollars that wasn't running. It had sat in a shed for a few years and I was hoping it was just the carb but now a couple hundred dollars later after resleeving the cylinder and replacing the oil pump chain it runs and moves under its own power. BUT It only stays in second gear and creeps or whatever the default safety thing is but it wont leave ESP mode even when you put the selector in auto and the gear indicator has a constant"--" that does not flash and the up and down gear selectors don't do anything. According to the manual stuck in ESP with -- says check for TCM open loop and if not its a faulty TCM. So now another hundred or so dollars later with the new TCM and no change. So what next?

the only other clues I have

4x4 is not working
motor sounds kinda flat as if timing isn't advancing, ill get around to checking it eventually
all three solenoids worked when i gave them 12v
the wires going to the linear solenoid are at 12v any time the key is on
I'm thinking ECM next which checking the timing and pulse generator will decide but can the ECM cause the other problems I am having?
