I always get the FCIM code when a battery is junk. Check your batteries amd alternator. A failing alternator will kill batteries.

I've just come to the conclusion that with plowing I generally need to put batteries in every winter.

Always replace batteries in pairs even if one checks good, the other is likely on its way out too.

You can leave them in the truck but you must remove the cables before testing each one. Only way to accurately test them.
