OBD-II PCMs have circuit protection to take account of the possibility of shorted actuators (fuel injectors, coil drivers) and other electrical overloads. Statistically, the PCM is probably the most reliable component on the entire vehicle. If the cause of the original fault (no start?) was claimed to be due to "coils", then how could the PCM have possibly failed again if a new coil was installed and the other coils were verified? That is, if the PCM was truly damaged, the cause obviously has nothing to do with the coils inasmuch as the failure occurred twice (after the coil issued was repaired). If you are back to square one and need a conclusive diagnostic, please request an electrical diagnostic and the responding certified mechanic will get this taken care of for you.
