04 250sd 155k miles first set of issues

So I bought the truck used from the stealership a couple years ago with 103k on the odo.

NO MODS STOCK

Oil changed for FREE every 8-10k
Rev X two bottles every oil change
32oz of walmart 2stroke oil Just started @ fill up
Diesel clean every other fill up

I live in sunny warm Cali ..

NO cold start issues .. runs great when until it gets up to norm operating temp

Once the Tranny is warm and engine reaches noraml temp I get the random "miss" and a little bucking when not on throttle / at idle

First signs of a problem.

Battery light .. flashing ... on .. off intermittently.

I pulled the codes with a dummy reader

P0269 INJ Cylinder #3 contribution/balance Power cylinder, valve train or injector
P0603 PCED Powertrain control module keep alive memory (KAM) error Faulty connection, faulty PCM
P1379 INJ Module FICM supply voltage circuit high Charging system

The steps I have taken so far and where Im heading.
1. clean the EGR .. was not bad looked like normal amount of soot
2. replaced batteries Both .. light remains on
3. ordered a new HD alternator from DB 160amp 6g $240 shipped

*Called little power shop before moving on .. some nice people in PA

Next moves

4. replace alternator and pigtail (the pigtail looks worn )
5. check FICM cant do this until the new alt is in ? (I have a spare)
6. pray that fixes the issue
7. pull codes
8. replace #3 injector if needed ... I have ordered a complete Oring kit from Allied power for all 8 injectors "refresh" all the injectors while replacing #3
9. pray again

Any suggestions or help ..

Here we go again lol Check your fuseable link :-)

The more the merrier right. Anyways it's most likely the cause of your issue, probably corroded or shorted out.

No I also surf PowerstrokeNation saw you there. lol

Follow power cables from positive terminal down to the link. You can also check voltage on both sides of it, but may give you a false reading because some power will run back through other circuits and back feed.
Checking the resistance on the link should give the problem away.

You can throw a jumper around it to see if the voltage straightens out

I got the main fusible link all cleaned and pulled it into the cab, ran the ohm meter on it came in at 0.2

What I did find under the dash would make scare a mortal human. JK

Left behind was a cobra car alarm all spliced in bundled and wadded up under the steering column.

removed all the crap and reconnected the ignition. Starts fine..

Pulled codes after all the above and still getting p0603 and now p1000.

Strange, need my new alt and then I can go back to trouble shooting.

I have not driven the truck around yet after removing the alarm and cleaning and checking the linked fuse.

so as of right now the other two codes are gone ? (p1379 and p-269)

@ 1500 rpm no load

Alternator 13.2
pass battery 13.2
driver side battery 13.0

Batteries sitting 13.1

Any thoughts or just wait til the alt gets in ...

Initially just p0603 and p1000. reset all dct went on a drive .. then did my FICM test 48.9 at ignition on ... running 48.0 then back to 48.7/8/9. With these numbers I assume the FICM is good

So far checked the fusible link ohm check good .. voltage good.
Batteries at idle charging at 14.1 .. new alt works very well

shut down my truck started no more than 5 minutes later and the signs of a very slight miss ,,, shut her down pulled codes

p0603
p0269

Cleared them again ... then they came back again ..

Do I need to pray one more time ..lol

I would look over the wires going to #3 injector as well as the ficm harness going under the air inlet near the d/s valve cover for any wear. Also make sure the transmission wiring plug is good and tight and clean. Make sure all the ficm plugs are tight too.
Longshots maybe, but are worth looking at.

What brand of alt, how many amps ? Good regardless the oem is horrible.

Got into the injectors today odd side Passenger 1,3,5,7

Number three inj had the code and for a good reason. I will try and post a picture of the issue.

what i found was the tiny nut that holds the thru bolt on the plungers was missing ! I dont know how it did not self destruct?

Now tiny nut is nowhere to be found ! Now I know why sometimes it would run like total crap and sometimes not.

waiting for my replacement inj ... from little power shop

Continuing to pray ...lol
