P0611 Code, Need advice!
My truck is having some starting issues when cold so I decided to check and see if I had any codes and I found a P0611, FICM code. I have been reading up on it and found that weak batteries could cause FICM failure, so I went out and checked my batteries. I found that my driver side battery, when I look in the eyelet is red and the passenger side is green. So I have a bad battery. Batteries are stock so over 4 years old.
I'm still under 5 year / 50k mile warranty, I only have 31k on the truck. What should I do? I have an appointment to take it into the dealer, but am hesitant now that I found out I have a bad battery.
Should I replace that one bad battery and take it in for the code, replace them both and take it in, or just take the truck in the way it is?
I don't want to take it into the dealer and have them say that because I have a bad battery that caused the FICM to go bad and not cover it.
Any advice would be great.
