Is it just me, or does it seem to be that FICM failures seem to be way less frequent on 2003 engines than they are on late 2004 and up?as for FICM youd have a P0611, along with cam crank sensor signal code and every injector circuit being low and if my memory serves me correctly the ICP code you would get would be either 2284, or 2290.
yeah partially due to the solid aluminum bracket from what i can figure less vibration. On buddies trucks i put aluminum foil and dyna mat heat insulation under the ficm in a cut out for the connectors. Last one i did about 3 years ago still the same one i installed and programmed at the first dealership i worked at.Is it just me, or does it seem to be that FICM failures seem to be way less frequent on 2003 engines than they are on late 2004 and up?
oh no dont crank it with it out or you will have oil everywhere! what i meant was to crank it when the connector was disconnected... it will take a while to crank and fire about 10-20 seconds.Oh no I havent tried to crank it with the icp sensor out haha. I was just saying that the wire connector was dry so that led me to believe it was good. I have tried to start it with the icp disconnected but still nothing. Mechanic that I paid to scan it for me said to change both the icp and ipr and I would be good to go. I'm pretty sure it's not the stc fitting on the hpop because it left me stranded 2 years ago and i had it fixed under warranty. what do yall think? Only have the P2285 code
duty cycle your starter. If you crank it for 30 seconds let it sit for a minute or 2. AND MAKE SURE THE BATTERIES ARE ON A CHARGER WHILE YOUR DOING THIS other wise youll toast the FICMI did unplug the icp sensor ans tried to crank it for maybe 5 seconds. should i try longer? I thought the comp would automatically go into default? I dont want to burn up my starter either. its been getting a workout lately.
No. Just because it isnt barfing oil doesnt mean the electrical part which is inside the sensor is bad itself. This is called a BIAS ICP sensor when you crank it and it is unplugged and fires after an extended cranking period. I can not stress to you enough that you will not have an INSTANT fire it will take up to 30 seconds. Even with a small high pressure oil leak it can and WILL fire if the ICP sensor is unplugged. If it does after that it will throw the 2290 code from there you will air test it for a hpo leakso it may take up to 30 seconds for it to crank if the icp is unplugged and bad? I am thinking that the icp sensor is good because there is no oil leaking from it. is this correct?
:doh:So you think the 2285 code I have is from a leak and not icp or ipr? If it cranks after 15 to 20 seconds with the icp unplugged then that's probably a bad sensor? Right? Kinda confussed
