My turn..................... ahh!!!

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.



*edit*
Found a solder mod guide here:
www.ford-trucks.com/ford-manuals/FICM.pdf
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??)

You should be able to do the FCM repair.

But a TCM fault is not a turbo control module. Thats the trans computer

How many miles do you have on it. Mine just turned over 73k and the rotors are fine, just needs pads.

Sorry to hear this... Atleast the testing for the FICM is easy to do and with all those codes it seems like that is your problem. Things could be worse..

Load test those batteries - I don't know if you can damage a repaired FICM as easily w/ low voltage, but why risk it.
