INJECTOR CONTROL MODULE OUT

Last week my truck lost all power while I was driving, took it in to scan for codes and the mechanic says that the injector control module needs to be replaced. He said it would be a $1000. How hard is this to replace and where is it located? Any info would be appreciated.

I looked on ebay and the only thing that pops up is "injector driver module," is this the same thing as the injector control module?

I will double check on getting it scanned again, but my mechanic is very honest and knows his stuff, but I will ask about watching the sensor values.

You could also check to see if the connector is loose or corroded...........it's in the drivers side fender behind the wheel well liner.

If you really do need one you can get a reman here:

I bet you could find one on car-parts.com for around $100. It is a bit of a pain to get to, it is right behind the F-250 badge on the drivers side. I scratched my arm all to hell trying to reach it up in there between the plastic skirt and fender.

However, I agree with being sure the IDM is the real problem. When you say lost all power, is it still that way? Does the wait to start light come on with the key? Does everything work and the engine turn over fine just doesn’t fire?

You can check to make sure the fuel pressure is good and the HPOP pressure is good for free before replacing the IDM.
