The ECM must be programmed to your vehicle. There are a few sources you can send the ECM for programming. I am not confident that you need an ECM based on what you have wrote.
Do you have a scan tool? One with DATA will be required for proper testing.
No I dont think it will be fast enough. Try hooking it up and see if it registers RPM while cranking the engine over.
OK. So we have a good crank sensor.
You are confident that is lacking spark? Have you confirmed?
inset a plug and crank over
Ok, Have you checked it for codes?
crank it over check for spark and then check for codes
The P1249 is low fuel pressure and the P1626 is an immobilizer no signal. After looking at your key I think you need to address that first. It is not seeing your key which will cause no spark. You will have to call a locksmith as the key needs to be programmed to the car
Yes the code could have been set because you tried it without immobilizer.
I agree with the lock smith I saw the code and still think it needs to be addressed.
Right now lets check fuel pressure. Do you have a fuel pressure gauge/

I am only compensated for my time when you leave a positive rating. Your understanding is appreciated.
I agree that it is not a key issue. The reason I am asking you to check for fuel pressure is you have a code for low fuel pressure. I want to make sure I am not making any assumptions and that there is not a common cause of no fuel pressure and no spark. Fuel pressure within specs will get me back to checking for spark
There is no time limit. If you reply every couple of days it will prevent from timing out
Ok. I should be fairly available tomorrow
It is likely not firing because the timing chain has broken a sensor. You need to correct the compression problem prior to worrying about others. Make sure you inspect the cam and crank sensors when you are taking apart
It is an interference engine and it is a timing belt not a chain
Put a belt on and redo the compression test. I see conflicting information as to whether it is interference or not
