Scan tool doesn't communicate with computer

Need Help Scan tool does not communicate!Hi Acura family! I need your help..I have a 05 Acura TL with 245k on the clock. To make things brief.

1 I have the the ! brake light and traction control lights that are showing up...was this way for a few months..
2.My battery died while my car was sitting for 2 weeks, I put a new battery and drove the car to a shop to get it repaired and find out why the light were on..the lights were still on after new battery was put in. The mechanic said that he is unable to get the scan tool to communicate with my car? (he has already troubleshooted to check power to tool etc...)
3. Trying to figure out 2 things...what would cause the scan tool not to communicate? secondly what would cause these engine lights to come on in 1st place. any help would be great..thanks
4. I did put a new VSA switch in..but never did the VSA memorization.. before battery died.
5.This is an independent shop..regardless of codes..shouldn't scanner communicate?..Is it possible to get engine lights out without scan tool working?

Try another shop, one with a snap on scanner or similar just to eliminate the possibility that their scan tool wasn't adequate or working.
