Need Help! No START

Hi, I have a 2005 F250 6.0 powerstroke. This past summer I noticed it was not starting as easy as I think it should. Once started, it runs fine...this past weekend I tried to start it and it will crank but not start. It acts like it wants to start but wont pop. The weather has been kind of cold and I keep hearing that it could be the HPOP. However, I am getting smoke out of the exhaust during cranking-that should rule out the HPOP right? Can it be the Glow plug module is bad and its just too cold to start? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Load test your batteries and perform the ficm check procedure. You need a monitor.

I bought a monitor but it said that there were no codes. If the FICM was bad, wouldn't it send a code? I'm thinking my Glow plug module is bad. I'm I off base?

No, not necessarily. Load test your batteries, Perform the ficm check procedure, cold. Check icp pressure. Glow plugs promote easier starting in cold climates, heavy white smoke when glowplugs don't work, then it would have to be most of them not working.

Ordered a FICM

I had the batteries load tested and I did the FICM test cold. It was reading 48 volts with the key on and not cranking but volts dropped to 15-18 when cranking. from what the FICM check says, it should never drop below 46. I ordered a new FICM since its obviously bad. Next question though, why did it not throw any codes to my PCM? or maybe my scanner is just to cheap and didn't pick them up? Also, when cranking it did throw out some black smoke and acted like it wanted to start. Does that mean my injectors were opening initially and then the FICM couldn't sustain operation? I know I'm throwing alot at you, thanks again for any insight you provide.

Thanks. I did check with FICM repair however, circuitboardmedics.com could overnight one to me for not too much more $. They did have a core charge but I get it back when I send them my old one. Crossing my fingers that it works when I install it tomorrow. I'll post again after install. thanks again.
