No start, ficm ect

Ok, so iv had a colt start issue for a while but it finally shut off after idling for about 10m and after I drove off. However, the next day it started. Took it to the dealer and they said bad ficm and 3 injectors (not sure bout injectors obviously). Sent my ficm to Ed at ficmrepair.com. I got back into town today and took the ficm up there and it wouldn't start at all. Threw a code for every injector high voltage (mech said usually its low) but it read no less than 47.8v and it's 28degs here in south Bama. Ed said check the wiring harness, I asked the mech to as I was home after the 30m drive. He hasn't called back, any ideas? The clips on th plugs r broke but they had been broke.

If the clips are broke your plug is probably not makeing a good connection.
There is a trick useing tie wraps/zip ties to hold it in poeition for a temp fix.

So after sending it to Ed at ficmrepair.com, he sent it back (replaced power supply , premium w/atlas 40). Plugged it up and nothing. Let the mechanic check everything still nothing. Sent it back to Ed and he found water and coolant in it (found some before that's why he replaced the power supply). He is sent a new one will install tomorrow. My question is, no one removed the access cover and the mechs drained fluids to make sure they got it in good. How could coolant or water got back in!? Anyways, will post tomorrow.

Did you ever determine the cause of your FICM failure? I have a similar problem right now--0.0 volts on my BPD FICM. My truck ran fine the night before, then the next day would not start. Edge CTS showed 0.0 v; test with multimeter showed 0.0 volts. Pulled the FICM to check wiring harness connections--all seem good. No chaffing on harness either. So, my FICM (only 15 months old from BPD) seems to be toast, but I have no idea what would cause it.

Give Andrew a call at 888-967-6653.

If you bought it 15 months ago, it's an earlier revision power supply. When our vendor went to machine placing (vs. hand placing) the components on the boards, we had some quality control issues. This caused poor solder joints on a few of the smaller parts. This in turn would cause the power supply to fail.

We have since changed the layout, component placement and quality control. If it turns out that you have this issue, Andrew will expedite getting you a new one under warranty.
