FICM replacement options?
Looks like I've lost the FICM power supply on my 06 F350. Classic failure: hard start and rough running when cold for about four or five months, then CEL light came on - low injector voltage, then wouldn't start at all about a week later. Test shows only 12v output, not 48.
Going to pull it and look at the inside this weekend, may try the resolder thing, but for those of you who have been this route, what's a permanent solution? I'm mainly interested in longevity, as I hear resoldering the bad joints is only a temporary fix.
I've heard a rumor that Ford will sell just the power supply. Any truth to this? (they ought to give it away, seeing as how it was their flash that appears to have caused this problem)
Has BPD ever come out with their upgraded FICM? Saw the thread on the circuit board prototypes. If it's anything like their oil and EGR coolers, it should be good.
Have seen the Swamps 58v upgrade, but does that help it live longer? Doesn't seem like it would.
Any other options? The F350 has been parked for a couple of months, haven't had the time to get back to it, starting to get PS withdrawal symptoms...
