97 F350 Crank like a Champ No-Start!

Ok so i finally installed the Ts 6 position chip in my 97 the day before yesterday. ran like a Freaking top! I love it, so i got this selection knob just chilling out on the trailer brake controller, so i need to drill me a hole for the knobs permanent location. i drill one next to the fuse box about 3 inches to the left of the fuse box. well the bit went through and into the wiring harness the runs to the steering column! NOW
1. I have repaired the wires that i got into with the bit!
2. The truck cranks but wont start
3. I took out the TS and it still wont start.
4. What do those wires going to the steering column goto?
5. There were no sparks/ melted wires "I had the Key off when i performed this dumb-*** procedure."
6. Help Please!

I know you have probably done it to yourself enough already, but
Smooth move. lol
I had a friend try to mount his subwoofer amp and drill into the gas tank, IN MY DRIVEWAY.. Gas, everywhere..

As to your problem, it may just be an unfortunate coincidence because there isn't anything in there that will keep it from firing that I know of. There might be another problem.
But that's what I know, which amounts to a pile o' beans when it comes to electronics.
Here's a bump at least for you.

X2 on checking fuses. Did you actually cut a wire when the bit went through? If you just taped it up and the wire is cut, that might be a place to start.

Thanks for the quick response guys. And I forgot to say I have checked all fuses. They are good! Another thing to note is when I turn on the key I get an immediate CEL! But I used a code reader of my friends and it said it wasn't communicating with the PCM? So I brought my old superchips programmer to see if it will retrieve the DTCs.

Ok No response at the obd port! Although it has power to run the programmer. Also no Wait to start lamp! I get a tach on crank. All fuses are good! I noticed a DIODE fuse under the hood would this be a possibility? When I turn the key on I hear the click like the glow plugs come on. ?!?!

Yes it is possible you blew a fusible link, which would need to be cut out and re saudered, i think there are a couple by the steering column, also if no TX RX is coming from the OBD port its possible you blew the PCM. you might want to take a meter and see if you have power coming out of the IDM or at the UVC harness.

Ok I have 12.3 v with key on coming to the DIODE fuse. And 18v going to it with key off!? And the diode fuse is .473. What other symptoms could I look for a fried PCM?
