Truck died need help ASAP

My GF called me said she was driving and the truck lost power so she pulled over and it died and wont start now. I have been having starting issues after its sat overnight so I am assuming it was the FICM acting up and finally took a dump. Is that what it would be? After sitting and getting it to start it would have a lack of power till it warmed up.

I got home lastnight tested FICM lowest it got was 47 while key turned on and 46 when cranking. I tore it all apart looked it over and it was fine put it back in tried starting the truck and it fired up finally after cycling the key more then 10 times. It runs REALLY rough and I have to throttle at all.

Here is a vid of it idling. It isnt throwing any codes either. My gf said it was running fine then she lost power (can push gas pedal and does nothing) got it to side of rode and died. Then wouldnt start.

Did your GF see any dash lights come on before it died?

could be a few different things. unless you like throwing money at it the only way you'll know for sure what is wrong is to hook it to a good scan tool like the dealer uses or software like auto enginuity.

I asked her and no lights came on. Is there a place I can get a scan tool? Would Advance Auto rent that tool out? Or O-Rielys?
