Not likely the PCM from what you described so far.

Do your wipers & turn signals work? If so then did you do the checks that I described in post 14?

If no wipers/signals then be sure to check fuse 3 in the PDC then check if you are getting power to the ignition switch from fuse 3 which is the red wire at the ignition switch connector.

Brn/yel is sensor ground and on of the speaker wires did splice these for the rear speaker. Putting an audio level output into this circuit
would screw with the engine sensors and prevent a spark and may explain why the cluster works with the distributor unplugged

im still stuck on the part where you said you hooked the + to the - or - to + to reset the ECU. I tell you one thing, if you tried hooking up the battery backwords for some reason there are a lot of things you may have fried.

Disconnect anything he hooked up and test it. I'm leaning towards the terminal connections. They should be scuffed up with sandpaper or a wire brush and tightened down really good.

Yeah I saw the positive to negative terminal thing and was going to avoid replying but since someone else has brought it up. My sister did that on her corolla when she tried putting a new battery in. Fried the main fuse along with half a dozen other things. Mechanic fixed it and then a month later she blew the motor because there was no oil in it, lol. Not sure what you have going on but I really hope you didn't switch the terminals around on the battery. Good luck
