help a deployed soldier out please please please

Ok so here is the situation im curently deployed to afghanistan and have come into possesion of a 2004 f250 not much is known about the truck except for it looks complete when i got it it had no fluids or batteries relays or fuses in the fuse boxs i have filled it with fluids put batteries in it and fuses and relays for the things i thought were important this is kindof a project vehicle in our down time so we dont hqave to walk miles and miles to eat and get to work the issues im having i will try to be as specific as possible

with key in ignition i get no warning buzzers dinggers or anything
turning the key on i get the warning lights on the dash and everything seems to comee on as usual except i get no fuel pump noise no clicks no noise at all as i try to start it the odometer goes blank and nothing else happens i need some advice on where to start it seems to me that i am missing a relay or something of that sort but where else are there relays at i can feel some of the relays clicking but never the starter relay #307 i thing the vehicle supposedly used to run and was brought to the scrap yard bc of a slipping trans but im trying to take things one step at a time first i need to get it to crank could it be a bad pcm what relays/fuses do i need where should i be checking for power please i need a direction to go in when i first turned the key there was some smoke from the fuse panel one of the connectors on the computer board had shorted out i repaied this so i dont think it is an issue just trying to be very detailed i have power at the pcm memory fuse and the fuel pump but get no noise when turing the key just one beep and the warning/gauge lights so any help troubleshooting the cranking circuit would be greatly appreciated thank you all so much

Are you sure BOTH batteries are good? Load tested? CCA?

First off, thank you for what you are doing over there man. Super noble and we all need to say thanks!

For the truck, since everything was removed, im sure it is something silly that is easily over looked. By any chance, did they remove a netral safty switch?

Your PCM is right behind the E-Brake release, it is a grey metal box inside a black plastic housing.
