Thumbs up FICM dead call ED @ FICMrepair.com

My FICM went out recently on my truck. I have a 2003 F-250 with the 6.0 and since i have owned it i have had cold start issues and sluggish fuel response. It finally went completely out and i had it towed to my mechanic. He diagnosed the problem as the FICM and said that i would have to take it to a dealer to get it repaired. I called the local dealer and they informed me that it was going to cost 1800$ to get it repaired. So i frantically started searching the forums for repair solutions. I came across many people talking about Ed on here so i called him and he walked me through his process and i was sold. I removed my unit shipped it to him and a in less than a week my truck was running better than it has since i have owned it. His repair got me back on the road and saved me $1,325.00

If you are having doubts about what to do or if your unit is going out give Ed a call. He worked hard to get me going again and he will do the same for you.

Thank you Ed from AL to IA for helping with this crissis.

Installed by 2:00, other problems.... 1 injector later @ 11:00 p.m. running like a champ. I also got the Atlas 40 tune and I am really happy with it.

2006 F-350 6.0 FICM Repair or Replace in 2014

I see lots of old FICM information but nothing current. As of the end of 2014 can anyone give me the best options and where to shop for a FICM problem?

Is money a concern or how much are you wanting to spend?

BulletProofDiesel has good options off the top of my head and should have some an option to meet your budget.

If you don't want to go with them I am sure you can find a couple other options.

  • 1990 F250 RCLB 7.3 IDI 4x4 ZF5. 45,000 original miles and factory original as can be.
  • 2006 Dodge 3500 QCLB DRW 5.9 CR G56.
  • Vehicles for days!

Will never buy anything from IPR and Sinister! List still growing

I'm looking for the best product (ficm) on the market today. All of the reviews I have seen were 2009-2012. As this is almost 2015, members have had a lot of experience with the various brands.

Which brands come out on top, today?

Hi BBdawg-F-350 -

I apologize for just now seeing the update on this thread and I hope that you are already taken care of, but FICMrepair.com remains alive and quite well in the land of repairing these modules.

In fact, not only do we work on both the power and logic sides of the module providing up to a lifetime warranty for our work depending on what service option you elect, but also can set you up with aftermarket tunes from Power Hungry Performance that will make you fall in love with your 6.0 all over again!

Looking forward to earning your business,

Ed

Still wondering - best ficm replacement/repair

Ed,
Thank You for Your response. I have resolved my ficm by allowing my local shop to replace my unit with his best judgment.

He did the ficm replacement in conjunction with replacing my EGR cooler so no labor cost was involved, just the part. (I purchased the truck 3 yrs ago with a sinister delete installed but have grown weary of the constant CEL and fear of adding programmers and over stressing the engine, causing future issues. This is our only daily driver and hauling my 38ft 5th wheel, which we live it and on a fixed income)

Because of the cost, I was hoping other members who have used the various Options for ficm, repair (like Yours) or alternative replacements, would have spoken out and let us know how their particular choice worked out for them.

We often hear why people initially make choices but seldom hear how it worked out.

So, Still wondering.

Thanks Again!
Randy

03 6.0 ficm problems ( I Think)?

Recently it has been cold here(OH). I went out to start my truck and it started for about 30 seconds, as I got out and went to unplug it, it died and wouldn't fire again. In the mean time trying to start it I burnt a starter up. After it died it was throwing several codes such as p0267, p2617 po261 along with about 7 or 8 more all with something about injectors and contribution balance. after I replaced the starter I checked for codes again and there were none but It still wouldn't fire. I ran a salamander under it for about 30 mins and after a few tries finally got it to start but ran like crap. I let it warm up and shut it off for the night. the next morning it did the same thing, but wouldn't throw any codes so I took it to the local mechanic and he couldn't pull any codes from it either.
Any help or opinions on what you think it might be would be a great help
Its egr deleted and studded with a sct tuner
