Crank but no start

I have searched about this and have a lot of useful information. Just wanted to start a new thread about one issue that might add to my problem. I'll start from the begginning.

Just bought an 06 F350 King Ranch CCLB 4X4 with 113,000 miles. I have driven it a lot and has been running great before I bought it. It was low on fuel so I rode with a guy from the dealer, which I too work for, and put 32 gallons of diesel in. Yes it was diesel. drove 3 miles back to the dealer shut it off for about 10 minutes to do some final cleaning before I left. Drove 5 miles to the DMV and came out 30 minutes later and it will crank but won't start. I still have to hook a GOOD diag tool to it to get certain info. What I am wondering is what problems could the fuel that I just put in give me? It ran great up until that point. No sputtering or smoking or anything. Plus I only paid 17,700 for this truck and I think its a deal. What can you guys tell me? I have 4 days to return it if it is something major.

Thanks in advance,
Nick

The most common thing to cause a problem like yours is the FICM. I am not saying that is whats the problem but it is very common. You need a good scanner to hook to your truck to know for sure.

I will have a matco determinator in the morning. It reads everything I need to know. Just pissed right now and want to know what's wrong right now, but I know that aint gonna happen with out the scanner.
How much does the FICM run?

Does it need to be programed or is it just plug and play? I can get parts at wholesale prices from ford dealer so I may be able to do it myself. If that's what's wrong.
Thanks,
Nick

It has to be programmed by Ford and thats the only problem. Getting to it and changing would be easy but then you would still have to get it to ford.

I don't guess that would be so bad. Right now it has to be towed anywhere no matter what. I could install it and then tow it to ford. That would save me a little change.
Now I just have to wait for the morning to see what the actual problem is.

Thanks

I know first hand its a common problem. Our 6.0 died at 110,000 miles. It was the FICM, but it also needed the cold flash. Did it idle real rough in the mornings?
