Non starter ECU?

Just bought an 06 ZR 1.4 as a non-runner. Have tried starting it & it tries to fire but will not properly start & stay running. I am convinced it is an electrical problem.
I have tried using an OBD code finder & found that when I plug it in with ignition off, no lights illuminate (not normal). When I turn ignition on, it runs through the light like a Christmas tree chaser light. This part is normal but it is only meant to happen once when pugged in but instead, it constantly repeats the sequence.
My laptop & software does connect to the OBD reader but will not connect to the ECU.
Any ideas?
