Got her running

Hi guys,

So I changed out the #2 injector and the FICM which caused all this havoc to begin with.

I bled the system and got her running and let her high idle for a little while. Took her out on a test run went 10 miles and bam it shut off. I restarted the truck and drove it home.

The truck now won't start and I am wondering about my values

ICP is 600+
IPR hits 23.9 during cranking
My fuel pump is putting out 62 psi

I called Ed at FICM to get his opinions. He asked if I had my DC alternator bench tested and since it had been working fine I did not. He mentioned he sees the voltage regulator take out FICM logic boards every week.....well at this point I am not sure if it happened again. I pulled the following codes:

P0611 FICM Fuel injector control module performance Internal FICM failure
P1378 INJ Module FICM supply voltage circuit low Faulty connection, fuse, faulty relay, short to ground, charging system
U0105 PCED Lost communication with FICM Communication failure
P2552 FICM circuit — throttle/fuel inhibit circuit RPM out of range for closed pedal position

I am kinda bummed right now and not sure what is going on but somehow I wonder if the FICM logic board went again?

The truck will not start at all now.


At this point I am like WTF!

A buzz test will tell you if the logic board went out i believe. Also check the FICM wiring, a chafed wire will kill the logic board.

Yes, the first thing to check is the wiring and the connections. You might be surprised. I thought for sure I had my FICM connections good and secure, but I didn't.

So now the POS starts and runs normal but I did not take it for a test drive. I am not sure of my IPR values maybe someone can confirm they are good. I am sure the ICP and FMP are good

At idle:
ICP- 636
IPR- 22.1
47.5 FMP

At 2000 rpm:
ICP- 939
IPR- 27.1
FMP- 47.5 - 48.0

The buzz test is even prior to start up.

I need to clear my head because I was ready to burn the truck to the ground earlier.

I am going to check everything. I went from a miss to now it's dying on the road SMH

You are correct Jack! I have my hair but I surely have a skunk line down the center LOL

I love my truck but in all honesty there isn't a day that I don't think "what is going to happen next?" and to be honest it wears me out.

It is funny because I was a wrench by trade for 15 years and moved onto better things and my dad is retired (75) and was a wrench for 50 years. He has such a cool outlook on stuff whereas I go from 0-60 when stuff goes wrong

The problem with this engine is the HEUI.....and the obvious head bolts.....dogsh*t system in my opinion. When it works it is great any one of 10 things go wrong it is broke.

I know what you mean man!. I have a 116K on my long block build now. No problems to this point but I keep wondering if there are pieces and parts I should be replacing as PM. I don't know!! Loving my truck but holding my breath for the next ride on a rollback! LOL!!

I am still curious about my IPR values, they seem low.

I removed the valve and the screen was intact and the valve was not stuck.

I am not sure if I cracked the connector housing while removing it or it was cracked when I was wrestling the up pipe into place a few months ago since it is in that general area.

Either way I am committed to change it out new and see what happens with my values and stalling issue.

I will keep updating as I find stuff.


The part that is bugging me is all the FICM codes I pulled after the few stalls I had.

Well this just keep getting better and better....

I have an ODAWG II manifold and it is definitely bigger than stock. Well I managed to remove the old IPR and as I mentioned the connector was cracked and I didn't know what happened.

I now know, this manifold is so much bigger than stock that the casting does not allow the valve to rotate past it on its last thread rotation and the connector hits. I had to grind the step off the socket to clear the manifold and figured awesome, it worked.

Now I need to take off the intake manifold to install my new IPR or risk cracking that one. With the lower values I was getting I took a chance removing it to check the screen and see if it was stuck, and of course broke the connector.

Time to recoup and clear my head, this is getting worse by the day
