FICM

Have a 04, 6.0, had it scanned the FICM was losing voltage. I was told to replace it, dealership to expensive. Any recommendations of a place to get a good rebuild?

Ed at FICMrepair.com I have personally used his service and he repairs your unit to better than new condition.

I just recently had mine repaired by him and my Ex runs better than ever. If you have any questions just give him a call or PM him, he'll answer any questions you may have.

Another vote for Ed. Had his ultimate service with warranty and the atlas 40 tune. Much better turbo response and the truck runs better than new now. And he is quick.

Thanks for the referral. I am new to owning a diesel. I have heard some of the horror stories of these 6.0's in the F-350. The truck ran great. I am impressed with this truck. Thanks for helping out a newbie.

Welcome to FTE.

I have a FICM I hope to be sending off to Ed very soon.

Have you had a look at the Tech Folder?

Be sure to do a forum search on here about the Ficm and understand what caused yours to go bad. Usually bad batteries is what kills a Ficm. Ficmrepair.com has a good page that explains what to test before putting on your newly rebuilt ficm. Be sure your battery voltage is good.

Thanks wildcat, I replaced the batteries already. I bought this used and really didn't have any kind of service history from the previous owner. I had it scanned from a friend who works at a Ford dealership garage. According to his computer everything is checking out good but the FICM. It starts out at 48 volts, then when cranking drops beyond 30 volts.
Now I just have to take it out and send it to ED.
Again, thanks for the info and helping me out.

If you need your truck for $50.00 Ed has an exchange program. For $50.00 extra Ed sent me a ficm I received it in 2 days and swapped it out and sent Ed my old one. Yes its $50 bucks more but I need my truck. Well worth it for me, no down time at all.

Ed seems like he has a great business going for him. I am taking your advice. I need my truck, it has been down way to long.

Along with the rest of the changing system. The 6.0 Engine can be hard
on the batteries.

Thanks for the kudos, guys! Yep, ship that module on across - we'll take amazing care of you!! Please also pull that alternator and have it bench tested just to ensure its health before you install any replacement module.

We now stock DC Power's 185 amp OEM series and their 270XP series of alternators so could ship those out same day if need be. There's a great conversation on alternators under items 13 and 14 on our maintenance tips page on FICMrepair.com if that helps!

I want to thank you guys for pointing me in the right directions with your suggestions. I took off my FICM last night, which was a pain in the rear, and I will be sending it to ED today hopefully.
Again thanks for all the help.

I'm also a previous customer of Ed's and couldn't be any happier with the way ive been treated and the product he turned out. He actually cares about your situation and wants your business. I've referred him to many local people in my town and everyone has been happy with his services. A stand up guy no doubt!

I got the Atlas 40 tune and wouldnt hesitate to go with it again. When i tow its very heavy. It has been very nice to have less lag and pick up about 2.4 mpg running average.
