Thanks for the replies. Its great to know there are other like minded people out there willing to help. I ended up putting a charger on and plugging it in until later in the afternoon and it fired up. I went directly to buddy with a scanner and no codes (besides the EGR delete codes it always shows). Let it run for a couple hours and work the new oil and fuel through the filters. Plugged in last night and it fired right up this morning. Once home, I let it sit for half hour and tried to start up again (no plug in between, temps are amazingly warm in MN right now high, mid 50's). It cranked really long almost close to dead, then started.
Plan to get the meter on the FICM this weekend, assuming no issues before then...
Thanks again for the support. A few more rookie questions...
Any tips at making getting to FICM faster and or easier?
Will low voltages on FICM show on code scanner?
Is it worth waiting for a Swamps "Hot" FICM vs. OEM?
Is the STC fitting connected to HPOP?
Whats the likely hood of the pump being bad and if so is there a better non OEM pump that anyone has installed and would recommend?
I dont want to start stripping this motor unless I have to. Are there any tell all signs for bad STC fitting vs. HPOP?
ANYONE WANT TO TRADE MY 2006 FOR A 2003 7.3L?
