BULLETPROOF DIESEL FICM question.....

Looking for some clarification,my FICM is toast,was told to get the bulletproof ficm,they sell just the power supply,is it a given that that is the issue?How do I know or it a given with the history of these things?The power supply is only $450,a full ficm is $900......anyone out there that can clarify for me the proper route to go would be greatly appreciated!!....my ficm is showing 30 volts at start,then slowly climbs to 47-48......very tough starting when cold!!

The fact you are showing 30volts means your power supply is screwed. Make sure your batteries are good when you put the new one in.

99.9% of the time it's the power supply. That's one of the reasons Ford came out with a half shell.

im watching all the ficm posts as close as i can cuse mines on its way out. from my understanding, only half the ficm goes bad so you dont need to replace the whole thing. lots of great reviews about ed, but with the extended warranty and the price, im leaning towards the bpd one.

X2 and make sure the alternator is good as well...AND do it ASAP!

Either Ed at FICMrepair.com or BPD is a great route to go. I had one from Ed and it was flawless. I'm now running the BPD and it's flawless too!
