You said you replaced the gp relay but what about the glow plugs themselves?

if it fires only after being plugged in, it should have all to do w/ heat= somethings wrong in your gp system... if you haven't already searched this site for ways to diagnose that system, I'd start there

I have the same issue with an 06 E450 van body. I bought a stancor relay for it and was trying to do the install today but it seems to be totally different then it is on the 7.3l. Trying to figure this one out myself. good luck

Ahhh the dreaded P0611 FICM death code. Chalk it up to another classic FICM failure on a 6.0L.

FICM failures will show up in MANY forms. Some will cause absolute no-starts. Some will cause the engine to run very poorly. Some won't even produce symptoms perceptible at all, until the three voltages are monitored.
