04 6.0L Wont Start. (P0611) Please Help!
Hey guys i am new to this forum but i have done some research and you all seem very informative so i thought i would throw this one at you. My truck had been running a little rough in the mornings when it was cold and white smoked a little untill warm. as i was driving it home it sputtered a couple times then smoothed out. it did this twice. i parked and plugged it in for the night and when i tried to start it in the morning it would crank but not start. I noticed that the clicking noise i usually hear when letting the glow plugs do there thing was no longer audible. (I have been told that this clicking is the injectors doing there self test?) The oil was changed about 1200 miles ago along with both fuel filters. the fuel tank is 3/4 full. i tried and tried to get it to start thinking that maybe the block heater had stoped working and that it would eventually fire. and subsequently drained the batteries. i recharged them and ran the codes. p1000, p0603, and p0611. I have been told the first two is nothing to worry about but P0611 may be the FICM. This may explain why i no longer hear the clicking sound of the injectors. I checked and even replaced the 10amp fuse under the hood hoping it was something simple but no luck. I guess i am asking if there is a way to check and confirm that i need a new FICM before i drop the $900.00 or if i should trouble shoot something else first. I am on a mega tight budget and with 165,000miles i am way out of waranty so any help is greatly appreciated!
