Customer Question

Hello there, i'm about to purchase a 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan el. The seller only said it has a bad ECU/ECM. His rewirer said he used another DGC ECM/ECU to move it to his workshop meaning the DGC el won't need a programmed ECU/ECM.
I went to get 4 working ECU/ECM with same PN of the bad one but it gave no crank, no start.
What can be the cause or do i need to programme the ECU/ECM. Trying to get the other ECU/ECM used to move it to the workshop has been futile because the person is out of reach
