Bad PCM??

I have a 2001 GT and I can't seem to get it to start. It wouldn't crank over when trying to start up and turns out no gas was getting to it. Turns out there was a bad fuel pump which was replaced but didn't solve the problem. It seems to be a power issue because it won't seem to turn on by itself. I tried hot wiring the fuel pump while attempting to start it and still no luck. So now my thinking is that it's the PCM. My odometer reads "------", my theft light rapidly flashes when the battery is, and finally my engine fan turns on when the battery is turned on. Does this sound like a bad PCM? And if it does, is there a chip that can be replaced so I don't have to go through the whole programming of a new PCM process?

I would recommend looking at your fuses and relays for it first. May be when it went out it burn one out or the relay is not working. Sometimes is just that simple.
