look into a high pressure oil leak first, there are alot of o-rings in the high pressure system that could mess up a very sensitive system

Start simple, take batteries out and load test them separately, then test the FICM or throw a monitor in the truck that can read live data. E.g; AutoEnginuity, Dashboss, Scanguage II, Edge Insight CS/CTS. If all that checks out than start looking at HPO leaks. You can use any of the monitors listed above to check the vitals of the HPO system.

No you won't see oil leaking in the valley. If there is oil leaking in the valley than I would first suspect the turbo oil drain tube or turbo oil feed tube leaking.

Testing the batteries and FICM like Tuscany suggests....is minimally invasive and very easy to do with very few tools. HPOP....lot of work.
