You can use it to veiw data and error codes but crank and nistart condition probably won't throw any errors.
You should be able to get spark even without an ecu plugged in.the dfi just gets ignition power via the Efi relay switched from the key so if there's no spark check for power to the dfi and then its gonna be either dfi or crank angle sensor
If Its Got Gas Or Ass Count Me In.if it cant be fixed with a hammer you have an electrical problem
