FICM code ?????

Hey all, I just put an after market turbo back exhaust kit on my '06 F350. Runs like a raped ape. Pulled the mountains like they weren't even there. No down shifts or anything. But on the way back down the check engine light came on. Took it over to a friend who has a Snap On code reader. It said that my fuel injection control module (FICM) was faulty. He cleared the code for me and drove it. No light and runs great. I got in and had the same. The Ford fleet serice guy says it has a short and will go out if I don't bring it in immediatley. Does any one have any experience with these things? Does this sound correct? Also what will happen if I keep driving it? Will it just shut down or could I limp it to the dealer? Thanks for the help in advance.

When the FICM goes, it goes. You may end up stuck somewhere. I think mine is on the way out, but it hasn't thrown any codes yet.

more than likely the code was a p0611 and if you dont get it replaced you will be down probably when you least expect it , and by the way , the other poster was right , the code number is always a big help

I don't know the number. My buddy got the code and told me what it was. He used some sort of Snap On plug in code reader. It was pretty awesome. By the way, my local Ford dealership says that the new FICM has to flashed by them and is not just a replacement part. They also said it was $700.00 plus $250.00 labor. WTF??? Why is this s**t so damn expensive?

my dad's 250 6.0 has a rough idle when cold, but no code. If I flash the FICM, I don't have to change it later right?

yea, ford normally only charges 1 hours worth of hourly rate to flash your PCM, I don't know about your FICM though. PCM should control that I'd think. Now if your FICM is giving you codes, before it goes, it can start taking injectors with it. Didn't happen to me, but read it in a previous post in this same forum (6.0 motor problems) Control modules in general are and have always been expensive..and as far as labor..seems like they figure it an hour 1/2 each way.

You can buy the FICM off of ebay for around 350-400 bones..but you Will still have to get it flashed by ford.
