FICM Harness

This may be a dumb idea.
Why hasn't anyone made a kit to remotely mount the Ficm?

I don't think that's a dumb idea. What's a REAL dumb idea is mounting a critical circuit board to the top of a hot, vibrating motor. If someone put together a relocating kit I would buy it in a second.

I would buy one also.
I would build one myself if I could find a place to buy the female ends. Ive found the male ends in several places online, but cannot find the female ends.

Ficm Repair states at first they thought the issues were external heat and vibration

but then they are thinking it's just the demand of turning 12 volts into 48 ,, and sometimes with less than 12 volts ,, it's just the internal heat cycles they believe are causing the solder failures

this relocation question comes up every once in a while ,, it was mentioned that the Eseries is mounted somewhere else

That would make sense.
I kind of figured someone smarter then me would have thought of this first.

I did find a link to another discussion about this on the forum if anyone is interested.

If i'm not mistaken I thought the e series vans had the ficm mounted in the fender well. Again i'm not positive on this but if its true you could just swap harness's and relocate it.

E-series ficm is located on the drivers side fenderwell under the degas bottle but the ficm/injector harness is not seperate on an econoline, it is part of the engine harness.
