Now I Have Two "No Start" 6.0's in my Driveway Help Help

I previously posted a blog in which I wrote about my "no start" issue on my 05 Powerstroke. After some tedious troubleshooting, I was able to get a buddies 06 Powerstroke and use his running vehicle as a troubleshooting vehicle. I swapped out his ICP sensor and installed on my truck and still "no start." I then swapped out his FICM and tried it on my truck and still a "no start." When I reinstalled the ICP and FICM back into my buddies 06 Powerstroke, now his truck isn't starting. It cranks and cranks but no start. Fuses are good. Batteries are good. Are FICM's interchangeable? I did disconnect my negative terminals on my batteries before I attempted to install and uninstall both FICM's. Could it be possible both FICM's aren't compatible? I purchased my 05 new and off the lot. My buddy bought his 06 used. I have the reflash I'm pretty sure because when I bought my truck I received a notice to take my truck back in for a reflash and new limit for the degass bottle. Any help opinion would be appreciated. Thank you.

lol-if you are swapping parts between trucks, it's always a good idea to try the suspected bad parts on the good vehicle first-that way if there is something frying them you don't ruin a good part.

all ficm's are interchangable, no worries there. did you get the FICM plugged in all the way? Do you have access to a scanner? where are you located?

Lesson learned. I do have a scanner and no codes were yielded. I'm located in Brawley, Ca. I hope I didn't "fry" my buddies FICM. And yes, all three connections were securely connected. I even made sure we heard the "snap" on all three as the pigtails were connected.

Do you hear the injectors precycle? Try unplugging the icp and see if it will start. Check ficm voltage. How's the icp pigtail look?

you need to find someone near you that has autoenginuity. simply reading codes is worthless on these engines.

Luckily the truck is still under warranty under the 5yr/100k warranty. My buddy's truck is an 06 with 90745 miles and the five year period started in August 2006. I will have it sent to dealer and take it as a "no start." I hope whatever they find is covered. If not, I guess I'll be paying for two repairs for both trucks.
