    Fuel. driver's side cylinders not firing at all. Tried coil packs from driver's side to pasenger side to make sure it wasn't just bad coils. Tried to restart but to no avail.

    Pinched wire? Injectors stuck wide open(not likely but possible)
    I'd start by testing for spark on that side. And B+ at the coil pack plugs.
    oops EDIT!
    I believe pin2 at the coil pack plugs are B+

    OK just verified pin 2 on all the coil packs should be B+.

    If you have spark on the other side, then the ASD fuse is good.
    Check for B+ on the coil pack plugs with the key in the "run" position.
    Do not try to start it while checking.
