Hello. If the vehicle was jumped improperly at any point then that would definitely cause the PCM to fail. If the voltage was incorrect or if the jumper cables were installed incorrectly then this will occur. I would also recommend having the electrical system fully checked to make sure that you do not have any electrical issue. I would also check the ignition switch as that is a common issue on this vehicle that will cause the battery to drain.
