Unhappy 2000 323 no start

Hey guys, I am going crazy with this car. Was running fine then died suddenly, restarted and drove less than a tenth of a mile and then died again. Had it towed home. It will crank but it has no power to fuel pump and no spark. Checked fuses in glove box and all are good; swapped the fuel pump relay with the horn relay and still no change. Checked the fuses in the box under hood on drivers side but all are good. Other weird thing is the temperature gauge goes instantly to Hot when you turn the key to start the car. Even more weird is that the obd11 scanner says it can't communicate with the car.

I have heard about a DME but I don't know what it is or if it is even a possibility. Any ideas?
