7 screw ficm question

Yesterday truck was fine, today its falling on its face. Getting p261, 264, for all 8 injectors. Took the small plate off of the 7 screw ficm.

If I am standing at the drivers tire looking at the ficm, the bottom right screw has 11.8 volts with the key on. Is this the correct screw to check?

Yup, that screw goes from 48 volts with the key on to 17 volts while cranking.

Whos got the best write-up for repairing these?

I have the 7pin and used the instructions for the 4pin to resolder and repair mine. It worked perfect and have had no FICM issues since then. http://www.bscustoms.net/diesel/FICM.pdf

FYI... if I recall correctly, the resistors are a little different looking and in different location but were easy to locate and repair.

Re-soldered it, now i get a whopping 19 volts while cranking. Now what do i do?

I got to drive this truck for a whole week after replacing the icp before this garbage started.

Its about time to end this insanity, get rid of this piece of ford, and buy a toyota tundra.
