Angry check engine light....16 CODES!!!!!!!!

2006 F350, 60,845 miles on it, intake and exhaust

I bought a new jeep so I went on the 2 hour round trip to pick it up. After getting loaded up and getting back on the road I jumped on the highway and after 30 seconds of going 65-70 mph the check engine light comes on. I broke out my code reader ( every 6.0 owner should have one lol) and 16 codes came on... LOW CIRCUT INJECTOR 1-8, (8 codes there), then 8 more codes saying low injector circut again. I did not clear the codes because this has come on several times and goes away. I left the check engine light on and kept driving. I took my truck to the dealership yesterday and I will await to see what they have to say. The check engine light went off on its own the next morning.

Another issue I am having is it will not start cold. I have never had it plugged in (dont have a plug) and never had an issue with this since I bought the truck new in november of 2005. so maybe glow plugs I dont know. But having my original warranty run out and purchasing an extended warranty the dealership says the engine may not be covered! wtf? thats why I bought the extended warranty...for the 6.0 proplem child that ford put in these trucks.

I have had friends that have had the 6.4l and 2 of them had locked up pulling horses on the highway.
Another friend has an 2008 f150 which has been falling apart for the last year. (radiator x3, brakes, doors on cab rusting out,

I am about to buy a cummins, for the 6k powerstroke option or whatever the price is I think it is well worth saving the money and buying a cummins for around 3-4 k option. I am just tired of the **** breaking and hearing everyones horror stories.

I dunno just venting and stating my opinion.

Yup, sounds like your FICM (fuel injector control module). If you bought the truck in '05 and you haven't changed the batteries since day 1, that is probably your starting problem. If it has been 5 years, go ahead, clean the cable ends really well, and get two new batteries with at least 850 CCA a piece and good warranty.

try re-soldering it according to the tech article, or buy one from swamps for around $600.
