6.0 diesel won't start - need advice

I have a 06 ford diesel F-250.

This morning I tried to start my truck, It cranked,fired and died. I tried to start the truck about 30 times and the same thing would happen every time. Can anybody help me?

I have the exact same problem with my 06, mechanic changed cam and crank sensor and the icp regulator. Managed to get the codes cleared out, but it still won't run. Ford house said it could be numerous things, but act like they don't know either. I hope we can find someone who knows. Will let you know if my mechanic finds anything. D

I did have a ford mechanic look at my truck last night. He scanned my computer and said that I needed what he called a "fickem". Apparently it is some kind of computer module located under the coolant reservior somewhere. He is supposed to get it for me today, I'll let you know what happens.

Fuel Injection Control Module. It manages all aspects of your fuel injection. It will definitely prevent your engine from running.

BTW, I was informed that the reason that the FICM went in the first place was because the truck was run with low/bad batteries. When I bought the truck the batteries were low, the first thing I did was put two new batteries in which was about 6 months ago, apparently the damage was done. Low voltage will put excess strain on the module and damage it. So always make sure you have good batteries!

I would be interested to know what happens with texasfordD's truck

Hey guys, my truck is still not runing. Now we are down to the FICM, but after changing the crank/cam sensors and the icp regulator it's going to be hard to just agree to change out another expensive part. Is there a way to test this ourselves before taking it back to the dealer? If not how will the dealer know for sure that is the problem? THanks, D

Yep, own a 2004 6.0 with 130,000 miles. Just replaced the FICM yesterday. $800.00 later. Truck runs now
