NEED HELP!!No wait to start/Check Engine Light on

Hey. I'm new to the forum and to owning a diesel. I have worked on them before and would say I'm mechanically inclined. I have very recently bought a 1995 f250 that i thought was a good deal. It is automatic, 4x4, regular cab with 245xxx miles. Has had transmission/transfer case rebuilt within last 10,000 miles and new injectors about 15,000 miles ago. Also has a TS 6 position chip. Have most receipts and some maintenance records. In the past week i have put on quite a few parts which include new batteries, glow plug relay, idler pulley, starter. After I installed those parts the truck was up and running. It started cold at 15* first hit. I drove it for a day or so perfect. I probably started it 10 times. Then my cousin broke the ignition switch not the lock cylinder. I guess he turned to hard. Installed a new one and now the truck will crank but no wait to start light, and a check engine light has come on. Here's what I have checked:
  • checked all fuses and relays 4 times with voltmeter
  • Tried to jump the GPR, no good
  • made sure i was getting a good battery connection
  • reinstalled the old ingnition switch, same thing as new one
  • Unplugged the fuel bowl heater, maybe causing a short
I have smoke coming out of the exhaust back pressure valve. I didn't want to crank to much or maybe it would have come out of the exhaust but i cranked it probably about 5 times over a few times. When i crank im getting RPMs. Its like the PCM is burned out or wont work. I also have dash lights that stay on when the key is off like the check engine light and the battery light. I need help please. I tried to be as detailed as possible. Please give me any feedback. THANKS.
