JA: Have you checked the fluids? Have the brakes been shaking or squeaking?
Customer: it is still in the shop and they have reached out online to ford but no answer yet

Hello, It sounds like it isn't the module that is the issue. It has a wiring issue that they are going to need to find. This is why the module won't communicate with the rest of the scan tool.

They knew that but cannot find it

I'm sorry but it has to be on the vehicle somewhere. Electrical systems is one of those things not everyone can do. Alot of times people skip over pinpoint tests which are designed to help isolate these issues for them. If they can't find which wire is the problem it sounds like they are just throwing parts at your vehicle and not properly diagnosing.
