i'm going to try the ficm as many others have had a similar problem.

hope this helps anyone that has to replace a ficm. from what i have read, replacement with a stock unit is not the best option for me. you will end up with the same problem again. also, dealership pricing is in the stratosphere. if you do want to replace with a new unit, i checked at autozone and they charge $258.99. they offer no warranty though. other aftermarket places have upgraded ones, but on my budget, i have to look for a cheaper alternative.

that leaves rebuilding. i'm sure there are many places that offer this service. i found 1 place that seems pretty good for this option:
1) ficmfixer.com--base rebuild price $124--includes priority return shipping and a lifetime warranty

after contacting them, they stated that 50% of the repairs that come in to them had no error codes show up during scanning. that definitely sounds like my problem.

i'll keep ya posted as to how things go.

You need to use scan gauge to monitor the voltage coming out of the FICM. A bad one will throw any codes. Do a search for scan gauge codes for the ones needed to monitor FICM.

I pulled it off of the truck and have it packed and ready to ship. I figure that even if it is not the problem, it's worth it for the peace of mind up the road, given the number of failures reported on the forums.
