In the diagram for rear lamp, the top wires are voltage, the bottom black wire is ground. The brown wire on either side should be tail lamps, goes hot when you turn on the headlamp switch. The other top wire on either should be for turn signal. With everything turned on, is there voltage on that wire?
Because the front works and the rear don't, possible wiring circuit problem? The voltage for turn signals comes from bcm. The bcm knows when you turn on turn signal switch, either side, then the bcm sends voltage to turn signal lamp at the rear and front.

You should just be able to take out the module - just wire directly from the power source, though some controls for all axis functions and you should be good to go. The memory module is not really needed for basic operation.

It can only be power feed. Start at the light work backward till your meter power again. Possibly a broken wire on terminal point.

On the cover for the fuse/relay panel, there should be a diagram showing the purpose of each fuse/relay. This may also be shown in the owner's manual.

You've taken care of some really good things to check. A sensor would be my bet too. However, you could be dealing with a set of loose connectors, most likely a wiring harness when they changed out your transmission; I'd look where the engine-transmission join, or anyplace they would have had to disconnect wires to get to the transmission. They could have been loosely connected, and have come further apart. Perhaps if you find some loose connections, zip tie it or rubber band it together if the connector is cracked or broken.

I'm confused as to why you would want to do this? I can not fathom a logical reason for needing a heater in any radiator hose. If your have a freezing issue, have someone check your antifreeze. incorrect water to antifreeze ratio such as having too much water, or worse, only water in the cooling system will result in a frozen hose, especially the lower one, as it tends to be more exposed to the elements from under the vehicle.

The idler arm is sold as a unit with new bushings on each end. To remove it you will need to remove the castle nut from the tie rod and then using a splitting fork separate the unit from the tie rod. Then remove the bolts holding it onto the frame.

As far as I know, the engines are basically identical on the outside. The problem with engine swapping on these computer-controlled cars is, you also have to change the computer since each engine has a computer programmed for that particular engine. This often requires not only changing the computer but also changing wiring harnesses to match. In short, the engines will most likely swap but it is the computer that makes the difference.

Did you happen to find small pieces of plastic in the driver's floorboard? If so you unwittingly found the problem. The brake light switch is mounted so its plunger presses against a small plastic insert. The insert is pushed into a hole in the break pedal arm. When the brake is not depressed it rests the the upmost position so when the insert (when intact and unbroken) does the pushing up against the brake light switch plunger. Check the condition of the insert in the brake pedal arm and replace if necessary.

It will be ok to drive but it would have put the geometry out on the steering which will cause tyre wear.

Vacuum pump won't prevent it from starting but there are many many other issues that will cause this problem. You're probably going to need to take this to an expert in a shop that has a high quality bi-direction scan tool and the the diesel experience to get it to run again.
