Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are many possible causes for a no crank condition and it will require some electrical testing to determine exactly what is going on.

Have all fuses been checked?
Does the fuel pump run when the ignition is turned on?
Does the ECM communicate with a scan tool?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
All fuses been checked and all are goodWhen I disconnected the fuel pressure sensor the car cranked and turned on but no engine power and the computer throws a code for no communication with fuel injector control module .
whenever I reconnect the sensor no crank what so ever and the check engine light and the battery light will disappear, and the computer won't connect with the ECM

When the engine is able to start then the ECM communicates, correct?

When the engine is able to run and it is setting a fault code what code number is ***** in the ECM?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
It's the code for the fuel pressure sensor it's normal because it's disconnected I forgot what's the code but I don't think that's the problem
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 8 months ago.

I need to know the P code number. If you're unplugging something and it's allowing the ECM to operate then yes, there is a problem with that.
