Well I finally updated my insight today so I can read FICM, and it came back at 47V while key on/engine off, but then dropped to 33V with key on/engine on, and then ranged from 32.5 to 38 while running. I cleared the code and it popped right back.
I haven't had any symptoms at all, truck run and starts fine with no problems. Obviously the FICM is on it's way out the door, but I dont really have the cash at the time to replace it, and I am driving to Omaha tomorrow, which is about 250 miles, so will it be ok until I have the money to fix it?
Also, has anyone used Circuit Board Medics to have their FICM repaired? Their website says they only charge $325 to repair it, which beats the heck out of $700 for a new one.
I'm pretty mechanically inclined, and I watched the Circuit Board Medics video that they had on removing the FICM and it seems pretty simple, but then I hear of people having pretty high labor charges when they get these replaced. Is there anything else that I'll need to do, or just pull the FICM, ship it out, then put it back in?
I'm not getting any low voltage codes for my injectors or anything, so I assume that that is a good thing.
Thanks for the help everyone.
