Truck died, no restart and cant read the codes?

My truck sputtered twice within 5 seconds of each other while driving and the third time it died. It will crank but no sign of fire, no smoke out the tail pipe. SES light is on and i tried a generic code reader and a snap on reader, neither of these will read any codes. They say something like error-cant read computer codes. Is this a sign my computer is dead? Is there any way to test this? Also truck is chipped, showed i trying taking it out and trying? Thanks for your help!

Remove chip the correct way, yes.
Then, KOEO, does your WTS light light up?
