If the car had been sitting for nine months and you didn't add stabilizer to the gas, it is very likely that the gas went bad. When this happens it forms gummy deposits in the fuel system which prevent the car from starting and running properly. The fuel injectors could be plugged and other parts of the fuel injection could be clogged too. I'd suspect this is the problem and not the ECU.
Well, I say tell him to look at the O2 sensor. I know when my car wouldn't start, bmw said it was my sensor. It went bad out of no where. Other then that I doubt it's the ECU but it could happen.
