Ahhhh yes. Yet another classic FICM failure on a 6.0L. Replace your FICM and you're good to go. That was easy enough.

you can change the dc to dc converter for about 450$, or try soldering the one you got, if you replace the whole assembly you will have to do a programmable module install procedure which i doubt you have the tool to do it with, or you can ignore the issue and drive it til you can afford one, this type of ficm failure usually presents cold start issues and nothing more.

Thanks for the advice what would be the cheapest route to have it replace ill the labor my self its just the programing I can't do. I want to replace soon cause I don't want to be towed to the dealership or towed what so ever my question would be what do most of you guys do when this happens other that going to the dealer ship?

Yeah, it will keep running until it finally fails on you and won't restart. Get it replaced or fixed since it is already giving you codes to indicate it is starting to fail. Swamps Diesel sells them. You pull your old one and ship it to them and then they send it back all fixed up.

you can also fix it on you're own, i've soldered about 50 of them with no issues (we had about 700 6.0's in our fleet at one time) somebody has posted the procedure somewhere, just google ford 6.0 ficm repair, its retty straightforward and if you're not comfortable doing the solder work, just take it to you're local computer repair shop, it'll be a lot cheaper than sending it out and you'll get the same repair. If you replace the entire ficm you will have to have it towed to the dealer for programming, I have installed a couple that were preprogrammed for some reason, i'm not sure if you can purchase them that way though.
