94 PSD No start after starter replacement

Hey guys, replaced the starter in my truck and when I did I failed to disconnect the batteries before hand and arc'd the hot & ground when removing the old starter. Now when I get in and turn the key I have a wait o start light, the interior lights and deck ire up but when I turn the key she just cranks. I blew maxi fuse 8/22 so I replaced the two fuses and disconnected the fuel bowl heater with no luck. Where should I go from here? I'm assuming my rush caused me to fry either the IDM or PCM when I sparked the old starter

This may help but it definitely sounds like something is fried as long as all your fuses are good Diagnosing a 7.3 no start

Had a look at the link posted, nothing terribly relivent to my issue but I appriciate you sharing, the cables and terminals are in good shape, I'm
Convinced its a fuse, fusable link or a fried component. Where are the fusable links on these trucks, and would a fried PCM relay cause any of these symptoms?

Fusable Links on passenger inside fender attached to starter relay appear all good, when i first replaced maxi fuse #22 I was getting power to the PCM and my Edge CS would connect and display the gauges, now the edge will not connect to the PCM, no WTS light but the Tach does move when cranking.

Any chance you can get a code reader preferably an AE to check things out? If the scanner won't connect , most likely a PCM problem or your tuner is fried . Can you remove the tuner and see what happens. In the future ,always disconnect the batteries, PCM's are not cheap.

Unplugged the chip and no change, I am using a Snap on as well as my edge insight code reader. What would a new or reman PCM cost?
