Hello and welcome to Justanswer!

It sounds as if the ECM is down if the engine doesn't start and it won't communicate with a scan tool or code reader.

If the ECM is down it could be a loss of power or ground to it or an internal failure. The next step would be to verify it's powers and grounds. If the powers and grounds are present but the ECM is not awake then it can be condemned.
