If it won't scan then there must be a circuit problem somewhere, check all of the system powers and ground pathways. Fords are very picky when it comes to power and grounds.

If you don't have a 2 second fuel pump relay ground from the ECM when the key turns on then it the ECM is bad or you have a wiring problem. This is also assuming the computer has enough voltage and a good ground.
