03 6.0 crank no start..sits for days then starts but dies

2003 6.0 cranked with no start. Replaced FICM, didn't solve the problem. Had it towed to the shop. No codes showing up on edge cts. Shop says truck starts fine. So pick the truck up drives fine 3 miles down the road. Park the truck and while it's at idle it dies and just cranks but will not restart.

Shop says no codes are found and the FICM was replaced. Only mods are egr delete and edge cts. Oil level is good and truck was running fine with no issues before this.

What should I be looking into for possibilities?

There is a plug on upper fuel bowl on drivers side towards the bottom. Not sure what size allen it takes. Remove the plug and use a fuel pressure test gauge.turn key on and see what the pump will deliver, might have to cycle the pump 2 or 3 times.

Just somewhat of an update, after 2 weeks at the shop it's still throwing a code for the FICM. Why is this if the FICM was just replaced? Is there some wiring to/from it that is causing a short or something? We can't really check anything as it's still sitting at the shop.

Update got it back from the shop, evidently the edge was interfering with the FICM somehow. The mechanic said he had seen this before and didn't recommend the edge cts on the 6.0. First time I heard of that. Anyway unhooked the edge and reset the codes and now the truck starts every time and runs fine.

So wasted 450$ for a new FICM when it was the edge in the first place? Lesson learned I guess. Now if I could only find out what's wrong with my 7.3.

Can`t believe that a monitor would affect the ficm, but stranger things happen.
