Ford FICM Cutoff is 40 volts IIRC (Maybe 42volts cutoff)

the batterys didnt Look to Bad but Hard to tell looking at Voltage

If you have the Old Fashion Water Batterys the Best way I have found to test them at Home is a Battery Hydrometer and Test Each Cell

My Batterys Looked Good Voltage wise But Hydro test Failed
A Fulley charged Battery should Read 12.68volts Keep in mind .10-.20volts less at OBDII Port


Clean cables and Grounds see if that helps the FICM Volts any worth a shot IDK




But Next time you take Sensor Values do this
KOEO
Low Idel (Truck Idel on its Own)
High Idel (2500 Rpm)

I have Ford Operating Values for these 3 Above

All in Park or Nuetral

Also check FICM Voltage Under LOAD say 55mph++ WOT up a Hill Take FICM Voltage Again

yes your are right , those first ones are the second are at operating between 1,950rpm , I had set the gauge to those and seen the changes when driving , I hit the alta mont pass this morning and back no load fmp43/45.5 down in the flats same rpm 48/48.5 that plus the other readings got me thinking NO WORRIED.

Anything under 45V indicates a toasted FICM.

A better way to put it would be to say " under a load ", and the easiest way to work the truck is to drive up a steep grade. Mine was showing 48 to 46 V in the drive way and after learning how to use a scangage 2 I noticed every time I climbed a grade it would drop to the 30's. One time it sank to the high twenty's. It got so I wouldn't watch the speedometer but watch the scangage and Back off it to keep the volts high. By the time I got to the top I was doing 45,50 MPH. Ed fixed it and now shows 48.5, 49 v all day long. Best mod so far.
