The Fuel Injection Control Module is probably your problem.
It is the aluminum box on the drivers side valve cover.
First, you will need to check your battery strength.
Remove the batteries and have them "load tested" at an auto parts store.
If they fail, or test as marginal, replace them as a set.
You will need an electrical meter to verify 48 volts DC.
Next, follow the directions in the video link posted below or if you prefer written directions, CLICK HERE

You have a few choices.
One, order a new FICM. There are companies that rebuild the FICM using superior electronic parts. I do not know where in the world you are of if they will ship them to you, or how long that would take.
Swamps Diesel has about the best reputation for rebuilding FICMS <CLICK HERE> The first or second item down on the right hand side is what you will need.
There is also a company that you can find on e-bay that repairs them.

The other way is to purchase a new "FICM Half-shell" through FORD and replace it. Keep in mind that it has to be programmed when new.

You could purchase an entire new FICM ($1100.00 for those of us in the USA) from FORD as well.

OR, you could try repairing it yourself if you can solder small electronic parts. I have attached a pdf file that will show you what to do.

hi again

ok i took out the ficm

opened it and found out that there is something slightly different then the file you gave me

i have the seven torx instead of the 4 torx so there is a bit of a difference if i look at the small things to resold besides the screw on your picture #5

mine got 7 in yellow holes instead of four

you ilustraded 2 small resistance to resold besides the screw on the board

i have no small resistance beside the screw on the board

just the 2 square resistance then the screw so what do i have to resold overthere ?

please help

maybe it will be different since i have the 7 pin


thanks for the help
