Default My Acura vigor 1993 stalled and wont start?

It worked fine before but one day on my way to work the car started to jump a little the oil light went on and then the car just stalled. When I tried to start the car again it wont even crank. I don't know whats wrong with it. Can it be that the timing belt broke? Or can it be that my ecm burned because I tried reading the code and I think that it said the ecm wasn't working?
The oil light went on before it stalled. When I turn the key it doesn't crank at all I can hear something like a small engine turning but it doesn't crank at all and it's not the battery it is hooked up good all the lights and everything else works.

There is not enough information to determine exactly what your problem is. Did the oil pressure warning light come on before the engine stalled, or as it stalled? A no crank problem can be electrical-battery, wiring, starter, anti- theft, or mechanical-engine locked up. No response from a computer leads to an electrical issue. Rather than throw parts at it hoping to find the cure, it makes more economic sense to have it towed to a reputable repair facility so a certified technician cand determine the problem and offer the solution.
A broken timing belt would allow the engine to crank over, but not start.

If the starter turns the engine, but it won't start. It's probably the timing belt.
If the starter doesn't turn the engine, then you might have a loose battery cable.

When you turn the key, what happens?
