Did my PCM just die? HELP truck wont start

Heres what I did. I have and edge evo on my 2000 powerstroke. Packaging says the evo works on 94-2002. I returned my 2000 back to stock, and plugged into my 97. Downloaded tunes, and then truck wouldnt start, just cranks. Threw a CPS code so I put a new unit in, still no start. Checked fuses, number 18 was blown. Replaced, hooked up tuner to set back to stock, now it cant access the pcm, says there is a connection error. Im stumped please help.

How do I check that? Also I just read that since the evo was on my 2000 it may not be able to properly program my 97. The post I read said that even I return to stock settings it will be from my 2000, is that right? Could I just get the pcm reflashed at a dealer?

Will do that right now. Boy did I not get sleep fretting over this. Ugh. Diesels are fun when they work, but when they dont what a pain.

Anything can interupt the programming when you do this, I am guessing it erased your computer and failed to load the new programming
