6.0 Powerstroke starting problems

I have a 2005 6.0 powerstroke. It has 118,xxx miles on it. It was 46 degrees out the other day and took 8 tries to get it to start. Itll start, sputter, then shutoff. It also has a Bullydog Powerpup installed.If it is 60+ degrees, it starts fine. The scan tool brings up code EGR and Fuel Injector Control Module performance. Just installed two new batteries. Just looking for some answers to see why it is acting like this. Thanks

Sounds like it's your FICM especially if you got a P0611. There are several options out there for you, I went with ficmrepair.com and am very happy as are a great number of people. In any event, I would start to lookup FICM on the boards so you can see how to test, remove etc.

Once it starts it will run fine. Could it still be the FCIM?

The p0611 is a ficm performance code, useually indicates an internal FICM failure.
Your FICM needs to be tested and repaired a good place is FICM repair. com.

If it's under warranty, then that's a good way to go BUT the OEM FICM's seem to have an inherent weakness with some of the components and the solder connections. Ed at FICMrepair.com (as well as others) remedy the weaknesses which in theory should give a longer lasting product. Bulletproof diesel went one step further and they redesigned the power side of the FICM which should be even better yet.

Ed can also put a tune on the FICM (I have the economy tune) which increases drivability. Been very pleased with my truck lately.

Im pretty sure it needs an FCIM, injector 1 circuit low, injector 2 circuit low, etc for all 8 injectors.
