Exclamation truck dies while driving

My truck stalled twice with 2 mins. Loss for all power and battery light came on. Both times I got started after about 30 sec after dying. What would cause this to happen. Outside temp is -3*, had truck running for 10 to 15 min be for leaving.

Have the batteries load tested and alternator checked. Check and clean all your battery connections. What is your ficm voltage? A dying ficm will cause stalling or a loose battery connection.

I would not drive until you resolve the issue check your ficm logic voltage and ficm output voltage. I would still have batteries checked and the alternator because that could have been what caused the problem to begin with.

If ficm is bad how much long would it last.

Do not drive the truck if your ficm voltage is less than 45v this could cause injector damage or so I have heard. So put a monitor on her and see what she reads. Have the batteries load tested at least to see if this the source of your problem. You can have it done for free at napa, autozone, advance, or oreilys.

Are you running #1 fuel or #2? If you are running #2 you probably have fuel gelling happening. It seems this is going to be an abnormally cool winter in the mid-south USA.

Start with the Batteries. Disconnect one Negative terminal and check both batteries with a Multi-Meter Volts DC. If either show below 11 Volts, take them to Autozone (or other auto store) and have them charge and test them. The test will show if there is an issue with that battery when it is put under a load. Also if you do not own a Battery Terminal Cleaning tool, pick one up for under $5.

Once the batteries are back in the truck and the Terminals are cleaned, start the truck and check the voltage on one battery. It should read between 12.5 - 14 Volts. If this is true it is not the batteries or alternator.

From there I would check the FICM. Follow the 4 Bolt FICM Test since your truck is an 07. Follow the proceedures in the video below.

Tested ficm no voltage drop. Both batteries are a year old. If I had fuel gelling, what can or should I do about it?

If it's gelling, you can add a bottle of xdp or diesel kleen winter, then drive its all it's gone....
You can mix the two also. There was a guy on the what did you do to your 6.0 thread who changed his fuel filters and had to scrape out the wax cuz he had #2 and it got too cold.

Primary filter would be worth looking at
