Sitting on the side of the road with my wife and 2 small kids

Hi everyone.

My family and I were just on the road driving down the highway. Everything was fine until I noticed I lost power. I knew something was wrong and made it to the side of the road and the truck died. All my numbers in my dash message center went to dashes and the truck won't start. When I go to start it everything is fine but the glow plug light doesn't turn off. Then after a few seconds all the lights come on and all the numbers ( milage, miles to e ect) go to dashes. I can turn the truck on but it just dies again

Please help! I have someone coming to get us but I am at the end of the rope with this truck. We have sunk so much money into it and I love it but can't live with a truck that would leave us stranded on the side of the road. After all we just sunk another grand into it last week and that's cheap.

Please forgive me if there is already a post on this. I have searched but I am on my phone so can't search that well

What year and engine do you have? Have you checked your fuses?

Thanks for the reply. Sorry I forgot the important stuff. 2005 F350 6.0l

I checked what fuses I could. I am not really sure which fuses to look at.

I did have the dealer put in a new fuse box last week. I believe the one under the hood. Had a problem with the horn going off and my brake controler.

Thanks Heavy GD, yes same truck

My truck has 260,000 ish. I replaced the ficm around 205,000 miles.

We are home. Thank God for really really good friends that came up and got us. My friend brought his truck and his wife brought her car for my wife and kids.

One thing to add. The truck started fine when we went to push it backwards to load onto the trailer. Then unloading the truck it started just fine. When my FICM failed it only started once after it died.
