As long as your voltage is good then yea the Ficm is getting weak, mine does the same thing and it's been gettin worse over the paste couple months, so I just want to change it before it leaves me stranded somewhere and not damage injectors or anything

Mine did run for while at voltage in the 30's. I had no choice had to get home on a 2k miles trip towing the RV. It failed to start at lower then 30 volts.
The unit will only get worst and effect your injector coils. Taking a big chance of doing damage.
