Early model ficms could drop one injector at time, on the logic side of the ficm. Load test batteries, check ficm. Ficm logic board may be taking a crap. Ficmrepair.com

The ficm reads right on the pins I pulled the harness and check for chafing. Could it be possible I got a bad reman injector? Could i pull his ficm and put it on my truck to test the pins even though mine is an 04?

The chances you got a bad injector ae slim, is it a ford remain? I dont believe you will have any luck testing you ficm logic board side, it would be good if you could put a donor ficm in to see if your code goes away. Thats all you need to do, you dont need to put another in and test the pins? Not sure the 03 ficm will work, if yours is an early 04 it should be ok. Others may chine in. read the info at ficmrepair.com

Yea, but if the batteries were bad, that could cause the next ficm to fail. I've heard an odd injector amongst others, could throw a code, not sure how true that is.

The batteries are only about a year old. It would be ideal if i could find out if my ficm would work in that truck. Maybe ford would know mine manufacturer date on mine is early 04.

If your icp is under the turbo, it should be the same ficm as the 03.

I'm pretty sure you can, ford techs talk about doing it. Sometimes that is the best/easiest way to find the ficm logic board problems.
