I have my 2005 f350 and I put a edge juice with attitude on it put it on Saturday the 19 drove it down the road all good Sunday drove it 40 mile trip better mileage happy went back up north 10 miles into it edge monitor shut off , worked on way home. Monday same made it half mile and shut off, Tuesday didn't work only drove to the store. Called edge they said it could not be fixed offered me 40% off a new one.. Wednesday truck would not start fire then die. That programmer fried my ficm this happen to anyone else???? Where to send the ficm to get it fixed and reprogrammed ?? I want to get rid of the ford programming if possible I like the edge when it worked for the 100 miles that it worked for .. all this for helping a friend with his 04 chip came from him and his problem child 6.0 he tired of the 1000.00 bill and a crappy running truck but that's for another post now we are trying to get my 05 back running right my truck only got 13 mpg driving like grandma 3.73 gears and auto trans .
good batteries and alternator 1000 cca marine batteries new... I don't play around I and been looking at different options and seen that site and the different levels or warrantees . I will prob get two done as my neighbors 04 that I got the edge from has no power and he just got it back from the shop it ran good and got 18 mpg when it went in for flickering gauges !! and had to pay 1000.00 for it..
Did you take the edge out of the system and try it?. Ive got a buddy with an edge and its taken out his pcm twice. Both times the truck wouldnt start. Problem may be the pcm. Get ready for another 1,000 dollar bill. Edge strikes again!!!!!
I did pull the ficm out and apart smelled burnt just a little it sat in the sun for a hour I put it back together truck started had 37volts shut it off , re started had 30 volts then to 23 v and run ruff then died . I think it had 47 before I pulled it not running .
Now if one was to get pcm and ficm both reflashedwith custom tunes that would take care of problems or the programmer is supposed to take care of pcm?
Is there a programmer that replaces factory pcm or ficm ? The neighbor was told there was for his 04
that you take a perfectly good truck and ruined it with all the "fancy" stuff. i have a 04' with 201k on it. the only maintenance i have done is oil, fuel filters and egr valve. just took a trip to california with the cruise set on 59 and averaged 19.8. i could lie and say i got 20mpg but, 19.8 with 201k on works for me. 59 to 60 is really comfortable once you get use to it. all i did is slow down to improve my mileage, just sayin..
With the 7 years I have owned my truck, I read and listened to others. SCT is the only programmer to get. Use custom tunes by a know 6.0 pro. Not only does it programs the engine it also programs the transmission.Edge ,Banks, Bullydog on a 6.0 is a suicide.I have 96,000 miles on my truck, 93,000 with my sct. It runs as good as the first day I reprogrammed it. This is fact, if you don't believe me search.
Send your FICM to Ed at ficmrepair.com and he can put a one of several different tunes on it and you will be up and running better then before. Read his website or more information. I just had the Atlas 40 added to my FICM after it died and I'm very happy with both Ed and how my truck is running.
As far as the tuners go, I completely concur with what's been said here. SCT is the only way to fly. We sell them along with near everything else you can get for your 6.0 and have yet to have an issue. They are just rock solid.
To the OP: We'd be happy to take great care of you. Ship your FICM on across and you'll be better than new in no time!
