Please help i think the shop is taking me for a ride

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi guys I have a 03 ford f350 6 liter diesel and here is my problem. I could drive the truck all day with out any issues at all but when i shut it off for abought a hr or 2 the truck wont start again until i plug it in. Its only -17 here. If i shut it off after driving it fires right back up no issues at all but if it sits for a couple of hours all it does is turn over fast and not start until i plug it in for a few hrs. I have tested my batteries and they are perfect. I have had a friend come and crank it over while i watch my exhaust and theres no black smoke or white smoke at all. And no codes at all

HERE IS A LIST OF WORK THAT WAS DONE 1500 KM AGO

Egr delete
Head Gaskets and arp studs
icp sensor
ipr vavle
high pressure oil pump
stand tubes with new o rings
5w40 engine oil
new Rad
Sct live wire tuner
4 inch exaust

I had it in the shop once again and they cant seem to figure out whats going on with it and my bill was up to 1800 and still same issue

I checked my ficm and if im doing it right here are my results

FOR THE BUZZ TEST WHAT I DID WAS HAVE A FRIEND IN THE TRUCK AND TURN THE KEY ON AND WHEN THE FUEL PUMP STOPPED BUZZING I THOUGHT THE BUZZ TEST WAS DONE

RESULTS WERE 23 TO 24 VOLTS
WHEN TURNING THE TRUCK OVER IT WAS PULLING 46 VOLTS

Is the issue with my FICM or something else?? Like i said when it doesnt start im not getting any white or black smoke out of my exhaust. Truck fires up fine after its been running. Once the tempeture gauge doesnt register the truck wont start unless its plugged in. Hope someone could help me

Just did another test. with the buzz test is was 23 to 25 volts and when it was running it was sitting at 40 volts. I posted some where else and for some reason i could find my previous post so I reposted. The last guy said i should be plugging in at -17 celsius but how do you plug in if you go for supper for 2 hours and ive never had that issue before so i cant see the weather being the issue. What the shop was saying for these kind of issues you just need to start changing parts but i cant see these parts failing in 1500 km

If you are testing the FICM right then yea you have a major problem with FICM. It should never under any circumstances fall under 46V.

Also sounds to me that yes the shop is carpet balling you.

Wow king ranch 89 what a poor additude. It's my own fault hey. First of all I was in camp when my wife took the truck to the shop and second there is no reason at all to be like that. All I am looking for is a little help but from your additude i see I am looking ob the wrong site. But hey we are not all as smart as you so I would like to thank you for all of you input.

So when you pull the 2 20 mm torque screws out and there are seven pins you test the top one on the side that has 4 pins correct ? Also is the buzz test when you first turn the key on?
