Ok, couple of things,,,,

First, do you have a WTS light when you first roll-on the key?

What's your CPS situation? Did you have it replaced yet? Got a spare to try?

Got fuel in the fuel bowl? Does it dribble out the drain when opened?

No wait to start that's what leads me to believe it's a PCM issue
There is fuel in the fuel bowl
I have never replaced the cps but I have no idea if the previous owner did but I do not have a spare to throw in on hand

Ya gotta get that WTS back on...

Check all fuses, especially #30 as well as 19 & 22 be Sure they're All good.

The WTS is the key though, your pcm is not running and you have to find out why....

And if by chance all of those fuses are functioning you think it could be possible that the PCM went .. Or is that something that nearly never happens (praying that they are indestructible) haha

They aren't indestructible by any means, but let's not jump right to the Worst case scenario

Fuse #30 powers both the heater in the fuel bowl and some of the pcm. When it first gets cold and that heater is turned on it's not uncommon for it to blow. If you find #30 blown simply unplug the heater at the bottom of the bowl, replace the fuse and you'll be good-to-go!

It's actually Much more likely than a blown pcm.....

Not necessarily, is what you have a chip? I would remove any tune you could, pull out the chip if you have one clean the connector and maybe "re-seat" the pcm plug on the firewall.

Is there power through out the fuse panel? That is, #30-#22-#19 aren't blown but, is there 12v there? Does everything else power-up OK? All the other dash lights work besides the WTS?
