low ficm volts KOEO
ok guys i would like to first say hello as im new to the forum.
2nd i got my first diesel truck about 2 months ago. I picked up a 2006 f250 6.0 loaded and i like it alot. when i got it i new it needed a front end job but i didnt know it was starting so hard after sitting over night.
I installed a scangauge II and programed alot of the xGauges and noticed that when i first turn the key on in the morning the volts drop to 31 or so on the main power to my FIMC, if i wait 30 sec or so it builds back up to 48. my batt volts drops to around 11.3. once the truck is running the volts are around 48, and batt volts are around 13.9
Also the truck runs very rough till it warms up 5 mins or so. My dad has a f550 and it runs hard for maybe 30 sec.
i have a couple questions. could i install the FICM from his f550 6.0 onto my truck to see if it runs better? would it run better right away? What else could it be if this isnt it, Bad Injector(s)?
i did research this but didnt find much on the low volts with KOEO most seem like they had problems when cranking.
