Question Burnt up Fuel injector pump?

For a while now my truck has been running dogier than normal and not wanting to start with good battiers. So i just thought it was cause of the cold weather but i guess not. my check engine light came on and i smelt burning wire insulation like. so i took it out to ford and they fixed it he said somethin like Fica fuel injector related. he said it was caused by my sct tuner or bad battiers? Think if i had a fass or air dog lift pump it would of helped? my truck had been on stock tune since early november?

Are you referring to the fuel pump? There is no injection pump in 6 leakers. Get a fuel pressure gauge and test it out to see how it holds pressure at the filter. Doesnt sound like a fuel pressure issue though. You can easily test the FICM voltage. It should be around 48 volts. Swanps rebuilds them for 350. 12 month warrenty too. You can fix it yourself if you have basic electrical skills. did your truck have an inductive heating? There is a good article on that on here or PSN somewhere. Not related to the SCT.

I'm pretty sure it was the FICM they replaced. A pretty common failure. Weak batteries do seems to aid in its failure. The SCT would have nothing to do with it.
