Change every fluid in the car first. Replace the battery. Drop the fuel tank and replace the fuel pump. You may have to replace the tires, pads and rotors/

Manually crank the engine with a box socket or you can put in a battery and try cranking.

Unless you have the owner's manual with the code card, otherwise you would have to get the radio serial number and call the dealer.

Check the PGM-FI main relay. Remove relay and check circuit board. Resolder joints if any seems cracked.

Is the Check Engine Light coming on and going off 2 seconds after ignition switch is turned on?

Have you tested the fuel pump? You mentioned not getting power which is an electrical problem.

You can try the salvage yards for a used fuel pump. It need not be from a Legend. You can reuse the original housing for your vehicle and only change out the pump motor.

If the pump operates without any rough or abnormal noise, it should be useable.
