Default 99 Ram 1500 Problem

Hello guys, new to the forum but long time Dodge man. I need help with a 99 1500 4x4. I bought it from some kids up the street that have been monkeying around with an engine swap for about 6 months. Got it in the shop and corrected all the child abuse and have a problem I cant figure out. Engine will crank but sounds horrible. Initial testing for comp, fuel pressure and cam to crank timing is all good. My problem is my scanner doesn't even power up when connected. I'm pretty sure the distributer needs to be indexed but I cant get my rig to even connect. I thought it may be a fried ECM so I bought a new one but my OBDII still does not power up when connected. Anybody know where to start?
