Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Your describing the expected symptoms which happen when the powertrain control module is not awake. It may be down due to a loss of power or ground or the failure may be internal in the PCM.

Im assuming that fuses have been checked.

What needs to be done is use a scan tool to ensure the PCM does not communicate. From there it's power and ground feeds would need to be tested and if ok then the PCM can be condemned.
