First of all you have 8 coils on a 4.6, one for each spark plug. The fuel pump could be bad or need a fuse replaced. Is the check engine light on?

Pull a coil and put a spark plug in it. Ground the outside of the plug to a metal part of the engine and have someone crank then engine over. If you see a spark then you have eliminated that as a problem.

If you are sure there is no fuel to injectors and no spark, to all coil-on-plugs, the yes, with both failing at same time it very well could be the PCM, 'brain' failed
