94 F350 No start after starter replacement
Okay Guys and gals, I replaced my starter a week ago as my truck was a key on full power but no crank. Starter fixed the no crank issue but here is the issue, in my haste i failed to disconnect the batteries before changing the starter (I know, I know) and when I first stuck a wrench on the positive terminal i arc'd the starter. Now when I got in the truck to fire it up for the first time I had two blown fuses under the hood 22 & 9. I replaced both of those fuses as well as disconnecting the Fuel Bowl Heater ( who needs one of these in Canada anyways right,eh?)
Now when attempting to start my Edge Insight will not power up, i get no WTS light but the Check Engine Light comes on and the Tach bounces. I do not notice any smoke coming out of the tailpipe when cranking. All my fuses are good and I am in the process of checking my fusable links. To me this screams Fried PCM but I'm trying to eliminate all possible options before bending over at the dealer for a new PCM. Other then the issues described above all appears normal, my deck powers up and I get full power to all my lights, aux switches etc. I have a TS 6 pos installed and I have tried removing it from the PCM and still no change.
Where do I go from here Folks? I have access to a good Snap-On scanner but i do not think it is connecting as its telling me to use an adapter that I don't believe I have.
