Has the alternator and battery been checked?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

in the last 3 months battery and alternator have been replaced

Expert:  Mike Kelly replied 4 years ago.
Ok with the vehicle not linking to the scanner and the battery and the alternator has been eliminated this is the ECU that is causing this problem. The ECU is not communicating with the vehicle and the ECU itself needs to be tested.
