Default No start after plug wires crossed

So my 99 3.0 was running rough for a while. Today I turned it on and lots of misfires. I had cylinders 4,5 and 6 plug wires all on wrong coil pack positions. Truck just shut off. Then won’t start. I figure out plugs are wrong and correct. Now truck still turns over but won’t start. Is there something I need to reset?

Ahhh I have another coil that I know is good. Should I just swap them out and double check the wires?

Do you mean the starter relay? It’s turning over just not starting. Or is there another relay? I tried putting gas into the air intake and no start so I guess that means no spark.
