Bad PCM?

I really ned some help with this 95 7.3 powerstroke. No one knows this trucks here in Sweden. It just died and smelled burned cables. It was the contact to one of the valvcover harness, the pin to one GP was fried. Its changed now, but the truck wont start. No wait to start and the check engine light is on. I got power on the GPR, but it never turns off. When i crank it says vater in fuel-fuel filter-engine temp. Cant se any RPM either, it sems to move a little, thats all. The batterys, GPR and CPS are changed. All fuses are good. Can the PCM have been destroyed by the shortcut? And where is it located, cant find it.

It sounds very much like the PCM is fried, however try unplugging the the lil sensor on the fuel bowl and see if that fixes it. It can short out and cause smiler symptoms. I cant remember if its the water in fuel sensor or the fuel bowl heater but its one or the other!

Nice looking truck.

The PCM on a 95 is located under the dash near the parking brake I believe it is removed by dropping the inner fender well on the drivers side to gain access and unbolting the wiring harness via the 10 mil bolt in the center of the plug!

That should be it. I am going off of what I can remember as I now have a superduty and it is slightly different.

Yes, found the PCM .
They say the first thing going blind is the eyes.
So, now just have to find another one.
