Default Flashing Check Engine Light, Now No Start

This is about my gf's car. It's an 04 with 107k. She was driving when all of a sudden, the car was running very rough and struggled to get her home. During this, the check engine light kept on flashing. The next time she tried starting it, it won't start. It cranks but won't turn over. I tried connecting an actron scan tool but it says it's failing to communicate. I also tried an obd2 bluetooth adapter using my torque pro app and it says the same thing, won't connect.

I read that the flashing check engine light means a bad coil. Is this also causing the no start issue?

She's only had the car for under a year. The only issues the car was having before this was a surging problem when the trans would shift from 2nd to 3rd. Her step dad says he just checked the trans dip stick and it's dry. Could this also cause the no starting issue?

Can anyone please help us with advice to get this car back running. Thank you.

EDIT: She also said she could smell something burning when the car was struggling to make it home.
