FICM help

My FICM went bad about 2 months ago so I replaced it with a Swamps 58V w/ performance flash. Even though I replaced it, it is still throwing the code for the FICM. Any ideas on what to do next?

If it's the p0611, then it's normal to get that code with the 58v tuned FICM. Do a search on it, you'll find plenty to read.

You should call swamps. I just bought the same unit from them and it says on my invoice.

We have updated the 58v FICM's to not show the PO611 code (voltage out of range), however the voltage **when viewed on a scan tool** will only show 48v, though the unit itself, WILL be producing 58vdc (which can be confirmed with a multimeter AT the FICM itself)
Maybe you have an older model?

Is it possible that I have a loose connection in the back of FICM? The only reason I think this could be a possibility is because my Edge Insight shows a constant voltage of 50. It doese not flucuate at all. Seems wron.

The Edge will only read 50v max. The only way to check for true FICM volt output, would be to check it manually with a multimeter.
