I've never had much luck changing just one battery. Seems like the other was stressed enough to fail in a relatively short time after the first.

FYI - even though a FICM shows 48V, it doesn't guarantee that it is good. As stated earlier, keep a close eye on system voltage.

Don't forget the fuel pressure sensor and gauge. Since you already need a few new injectors, you may have low fuel pressure. If you do, you certainly want that corrected before putting in the new ones.

Watch a few videos by diesel tech Ron on youtube to learn about your engine. Have your mechanic check the headbolt torque setting when he is in there for the injectors. Sometimes, they are not installed right. Your turbo may need servicing. The collector plate is probably frozen giving you the low pressure. when it is off you might consider installing a billet wheel or similar upgrade.

Take both batteries in for testing then check the alternator. Ohm out glowplug, diesel tech Ron shows a simple method. Probably end up needing an injector in 7.
Replace the oil cooler. Some green coolants are acceptable have some in mine.
Turbo could be stuck or perhaps the exhaust backpressure sensor and tubing are plugged with soot. Check the codes
