02 smg issues

Hey don't know if you guys can help but I have a 02 e46 m3 smg that won't start. It turns on and powers up but when you turn the key and depress the break pedal nothing happens.it also won't change gears on the display. I took it to a shop and they said it needs a new clutch. So I replaced the clutch and flywheel, the starter was deemed bad from a bench test so replaced that. Also replaced the salmon relay and the clutch slave and battery. Still nothing. When I turn the car on I can hear the pump turn on and prime for a second but the shift display will flash 0 or solidly display 0. Iv checked the hood sensor by using a jumper wire and that didn't solve the problem either. Any ideas? I can't think of anything that I could be missing. Thanks for your time.

Parts replaced with new parts
Clutch slave
Salmon relay.
