6.0 died, now won't start

My cousin has an 05 F350. It has about 130,000 on the clock. Last week he installed an EGR delete as well as a new fuel filter.

Truck has driven fine for about a week and then yesterday, as he exited the highway, he romped on it, and the truck just died, as if someone turned the key off. It now swings over strong, but won't start.

He THOUGHT it could possibly be that he ran out of fuel (because his fuel gauge has been acting up), but we put about 6 gallons in the tank, bled the line, and it still wouldn't start.

What could it be?

Based on some of the reading I have done, it seems that a likely culprit could be the FICM, but I was curious to know if you fellers think it could be something else. I am going to try and get a buddy to hook his scan tool up to it later today, but I still need suggestions for now.

Based on what you guys come up with will determine whether my cousin tows it to his house or to the shop.

Thanks in advance.

First thing we need to do is get it scanned. Judging from the fact it just shut off like a light switch and that its an '05 it could very possibly be the fitting on the back of the hpop. We are also starting to see an increasing amount of the orings on the dummy plugs in the oil rail fail.

So when scanning, what exactly is it that we are looking for. The truck is stuck in a Moe's parking lot so I guess scanning and burritos is on the menu for lunch today.

First thing you want to do is scan it for codes, mainly icp codes. That will give us a direction to go in. After you get them, if there are icp codes you will want to monitor the icp and see what it is at while cranking. Also monitor the ficm pids and make sure you have ficm sync.

So, if it is the FICM, are there any options other than the $1200+ option from Ford?

Got some EGR codes, some low voltage codes, and a glow plug code for each cylinder...decided it wasn;t going to be something that could be fixed in a parking lot, so we stopped scanning and are having the truck towed to my cousin's house where we will resume scanning/investigations.

you can also buy a reconditioned FICM, and sometimes have your original one reprogrammed to work. What that many codes, it almost sounds like a ground issue.

Tested it again, and this time around the only codes it was throwing were the EGR codes, which is to be expected, since there is no EGR anymore.

Tested the resistance in the pins we were supposed to and it was good, (assuming 3.0 Mohms is less than 5 ohms) and the voltage with KOEO was 47.

I'm at a loss now...I believe we need Ford's IDS system to PROPERLY test/calibrate the FICM, but based on the symptoms I have seen in reading, that module should be the problem.

Anyone a Ford tech in Atlanta that wants to come by and fix this thing? :-)

Jefferson Ford only charged me $860.00 to replace it.

FYI Being it has to be replaced contact power hungry performance in winder and get them to do it.
