Sounds like a glow plug problem , not the FICM. Check the glow plug relay, glow plugs , as a last resort it might be the FICM

FICMFuel Injection control module. I just had the same issues, it wouldn't cold start unless it was plugged in. Dealer changed the FICM under warranty. There is a really good diagnostic PDF on another site. A quick search should find it. Keep in mind replacement FICM's do not contain software and must be programmed prior to use.

Glow plug/relay failure is very uncommon on a 6.0l

Not all FICM's need to be programmed for them to work.
