Hello and welcome to just answer, my name is ***** ***** master tech here to help. I cannot see or hear your vehicle so I rely on your patience and input to my questions so I can help you better. I read your notes and ready with some advice. Id you have no power to the DLC link and the code reader is not picking anything up from the ECU then it is brain dead and that smell you mentioned is confirming it. But before you replace the ECUgo over any wirig from the re to the engine that may be piched or shorted out that might cause the new one to short out.
