I would start with the FICM plus you need gauge the Edge CTS or CS even the Scangauge will read the ficm. How good are your batteries weak or bad batteries will kill it, need to check.
The price of a new ficm around $1100 or you can have your rebuilt at BPD Repair Ford FICM Module for $300
or--- FICM Repair.com - Your Source for FICM Repair My choice
Info here http://www.fordtechservice.dealercon...FICM_Guide.pdf
and here http://swampsdiesel.com/site/install...ge_Testing.pdf
Testing the FICM
Are you useing Ford or Racor filters plus the injectors like a 5w40 Syn oil.

With a 53v has it been repaired before but it is still toast need to get it fixed or you will kill your injectors. Should be 48 to 48.5v running. You need to have the batteries at a full charge also then check.
