Looks like it is my turn to get screwed over because of Fords shoddy parts.
My truck bucked and kicked the last time I started it and I thought it was just because the fuel filters were due.
This morning it wouldn't start. Got it on the charger now because I ran the batteries down tryin to get it cranked.
NEW FILTERS INSTALLED.
I eventually got a TCM fault (turbo control module) but that may be because I ran the battery down.
The other error is P0611 says FICM (fuel injection control module)
I believe it threw a glow plug code also but I cleared it.
Can I remove the FICM, clean the connections, and do the solder mod?
Wait, I'm getting ahead of myself.
I know absolutely nothing about this super-secret solder mod, can someone please explain?
How about a written guide with pics of the mod, does one exist?
Don't want to spend the money on an FICM unless it is a LAST RESORT.
If I can find a good used one, how do I determine if it's got the latest flash, and how much $$ to get it flashed to latest?
This is a bunch of bull crap. There's no excuse us havin to replace this many parts, they ought to have a recall for it. I've got new brake rotors on the way, new calipers too, and now this crap. God bless...
Please be gentle.
Found a solder mod guide here:
But it looks very delicate and I am not an expert with electronics.
Any recommendations on who I can consult? (can I pay someone to mod it for me??)
