SWAMPS 58V FICM READS 54.5V ON SCANNER

my 2 month old ficm from swamps id reading 54.5 v on scanner. i can help but feel a little upset considering what i payed and the fact that it is already showing signs of voltage drop. I called them and they said the scanner is not the accurate way to check it....

anyone else experience this?

You're fine, the computer will only read to a certain voltage

Computer see's what it's told.

The FICM doesn't know what voltage it's at.

You are correct. AE and IDS both won't read up that high on a 58V FICM. The only way to check it is to pull the cover and read it directly off the FICM.
