2006 6.0 that will not start.... need help

Hello everyone..... im new to the site and new to the truck all together. i bought my first diesel about 2 months ago. from how it drove and everything i would of never guessed there was anything wrong with the darn thing. 2 weeks ago it just stalled on me going down the highway. i took it to a shop and they told me that it was the camshaft sensor. they changed the camshaft sensor and nothing. truck still wouldnt start. they put it on the computer and it gave out the ficm code, along with about 4 diffrent glow plug codes. they told me i had to take it to the ford house to get it repaired because that was more than they could do. so i pick up my truck and take it to another place. they put it on the computer as well and it had the same codes. just on another diffrent diagnosis computer. so i looked up how to test the ficm, it tests out at 48v. but the truck wont start..... has any one had this problem. if so HELP!

I assume you are doing the physical test correct? If so, get someone to turn the key over while you are checking the pin on the FICM with the voltage meter and see what happens. When I had to replace my FICM awhile back I would see 48v with the key on, but when cranking it dropped to 25v, which means the FICM was toast.

I personally have never seen that on the 6.0s I've worked on. You might want to check all the connections at the FICM. Unplug the batteries, remove the four bolts holding it to the bracket and then disconnect them, clean them with electrical cleaner and then reconnect them. Make sure you can hear/feel the plugs click into the FICM, maybe one of them is loose and not seated properly. Be careful not to break the clip on the plug ends, it's easy to do, ask me how I know.

The FICM may have been previously replaced. Even if you are getting a software incompatibility code, it will not effect the operation of the FICM/PCM. I had tha code for over a year on an FICM when I did a swap out with Swamps. I believe the code is U0601.
