Hello and welcome!
My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question.
Start by checking for a 5 volt reference to the TPS and MAP sensor with the key on. If there is no reference voltage to these sensors with the key on, then we need to check all inputs to the PCM with the key on. This includes all powers from all fuses, ignition switch and even fusible links (if equipped).

have checked all fuses inside and outside, all good, relays all good, but smell burnt electrical inside vehicle, but everything else inside works with key , only problem car wont start,
Expert:  Amedee replied 1 year ago.
So what about the reference voltage?

there is none
Expert:  Amedee replied 1 year ago.
Ok, then the computer is not awake. This is why the vehicle will not start.
Your next step would be to check all powers and grounds going into the PCM with the key on. If all checks out good, then the PCM is bad and will need to be replaced.
