Van starts then immediately turns off. Took it to mechanic and he tells me his scanner can't read the Van's computer? Why?

Van is a 3.8 ltr.

Hi there,

there could be a problem in the cars ECU often if there is no down load this is the problem, but it also could be in there equipment, I would try another mechanic and if there scanned dose the same thing, I would be suspect a faulty ECU.
