Exclamation HELP!!! Engine Turns over but doesnt start, with a twist!!

I have a 1999 ranger 3.0 flex that was running fine till a buddy tried to fix my power windows... long story short he tried to put foil on the power window relay like it was a fuse but put it on the pcm power relay!!! Now the truck will only turn over and not start. The check engine light doesnt come on at ignition anymore. fearing the powertrain control module may be fried but hoping it might be more simple. I replaced all the relays but still no luck.

sounds like a cooked pcm.. ive seen people burn there trucks to the ground cause they put foil in place of a fuse are relay.
