No start 03 in Hershey PA

Need help. My 03 is a no start and I am at Pirate land in Myrtle beach. On the trip down it sounded like it was missing but it started up at every fuel stop. Try to start this morning and it just cranks. Checked FICM and it is 48v while cranking. I don not have a scan tool is anyone local who can help me or do I have to go to the dealer? Have lots of beer for the assistance.

Batteries seem fine, cranks strong. Recently replaced ICP connector, ran great after that. Fresh Mobile 1 oil change and fuel filters (Racor) before leaving.

Can your Edge Insight check for codes? There is also an 04 no start thread here that has some good info.

There is a screen to check and it shows no codes. It's the older insight, not the CS type so not sure how well that works

Went to the beach, beautiful beach weather, got one of my kids out of the water, kicking and screaming they were, to help check out oil pressure and fuel pressure. Checked fuel pump (removed filter) turned on key bowl filled quickly. Put the fuel filter back on. Pulled oil filter, cranked engine, freaking thing started right up! Put oil filter back in, cleaned every thing up (no ground spills, thank you Bounty) started truck. Didn't drive it though.

I am thinking chaffed wiring, but I didn't move any wires. thoughts?

Well its starting but there is a definite miss but it did this before I left. While I don't know what a failing injector sounds like I suspect this is it. Would one bad injector cause a no start then start? Maybe the heat of the day helps start?

When I checked the FICM it showed 35 when the key was first turned then 48 while cranking. I didn't disconnect the glow plug module and thought that may be the reason. It does show 48 the rest of the time.

Yeah double check the FICM volts and the 6.0 is notorious for chafed wires, especially to the FICM

Karl I think wire chaffing I have been reading about the new wiring harness for our 03's if the plugs on the back of the FICM are coming out and going straight down then it's an old harness if they come out hand 90 deg. back to the turbo it's the updated harness. also wonder if you got air in your fuel bowl and when you took the top off you let it out. I had a self inflicted air leak that acted kinda like that, check all fuel fittings.

only trying to throw out ideas
