6.0 died and won't restart

Last night towing a camp trailer my 2003 6.0 died suddenly like you just turned off the key. I had to get towed the last 15 miles to my destination.

All fuses are good and I can hear the fuel pump run. When you crank it the tach shows no rpms. Could this be the cmp sensor?? I'm at a loss and need to get it going this weekend to I can go home. The closest ford shop is not open till monday.

No RPM when cranking? Do the 6.oh trucks have that issue with that sensor?

It isn't that its a common problem like the egr coolers. But any time the Cam or Crank sensor goes out the PCU has no idea when to fire the injectors. So if either is out ya got a dead truck anyway.

Well we tried disconnecting the ICP to see if that was giving any false values and it still doesn't start. Got it in to the dealer and they had time to start the diagnostics and they think it is the FICM. They won't be able to get back to it until Monday.

I wish it was more like my 7.3 were I change the CPS and it's back on the road.

FICM is a good place to start

They THINK it is the FICM?

I'd want a little more than that before they swapped on a non-refundable module.

If you unplugged the ICP sensor, you have a late build truck with the ICP sensor on the valve cover.

It could be the wiring to the cam sensor, I have a truck apart for an engine harness as we speak. There are a lot of locations where the harness is crushed on these engines. Simplest diagnosis for that is overlaying the CMP circuit to the PCM. Seldom seeing CKP sensors fail on the 6.0.

Why do they think it is the FICM?

Well the truck is an early build date because the ICP is way in the back kind of behind the turbo. It's not easy but it is possible to get to it back there.

My dad picked up the truck today it turns out that the 50amp fuse for the FICM was blown, it didn't visually look like it but they put a new one in and it started right up. So they were correct in that the FCIM was not functioning. The first question I asked was well what caused it to blow and they could not figure that part out.

So my dad bought some extra fuses hooked up the trailer and headed for home and it happened again after about an hour of driving w/the trailer. This time a new fuse did not fix the problem. So tonight it is getting towed to the nearest dealer to see if they can find it. Only so much you can do when your rig quits running in the dark.

Anyone have an idea of a common short that would cause this fuse to blow??

I thought I would give an update to others that may stumble upon this thread. The problem ended up be a shorted wire near the fuse panel.
