can the ficm on the ford 6.0 diesel no

Can The Ficm On The Ford 6.0 Diesel No? What a Failing FICM Looks and Sounds Like. When you aren’t getting 48-volts to the injector coils you get: hard starts, rough idle, loss of power, poor drivability, and excessive smoke out the tailpipe—and in cold weather each of those symptoms will be amplified.

What are the symptoms of a bad FICM on a 6.0 Powerstroke? What a Failing FICM Looks and Sounds Like. When you aren’t getting 48-volts to the injector coils you get: hard starts, rough idle, loss of power, poor drivability, and excessive smoke out the tailpipe—and in cold weather each of those symptoms will be amplified.

How can I tell if my FICM is bad? Any voltage reading below 45 volts indicates a bad FICM and will need to be replaced. If you receive a 0 voltage reading while cranking you may have a bad FICM fuse and or relay. Another way to test the FICM is to use a voltage meter to test voltage at the FICM itself.

Will the FICM cause no start? As it relates to the FICM, there are a few other symptoms to mention. One would be a complete no start situation where the engine cranks over, but will not run. This may be related to either a completely failed power supply side of the FICM (20 volts or less output), or in some rare cases a failed logic side.

Will any year FICM work on 6.0 Powerstroke?

All 6.0L Power Stroke engines built from 2003 until 2010 use a FICM, but not all FICMs are the same. Ford used both four-pin and seven-pin designs; the differences are internal, however, and both types will work on any 6.0L Power Stroke.

What causes Ficm failure?

While engine heat and vibration contributes to FICM failures, the number one cause (arguably) is a low battery voltage condition. As the FICM supply voltage drops the electrical current increases, damaging the FICM’s fragile circuitry.

How do you test Ficm?

Take a multi-meter set on DC volts and connect the ground lead to battery negative, and with the key ON measure the voltage at the screw on your right—closest to the driver’s side fender. Do not let the probe short against the case! The voltage should be right at 48 volts. Anything between 47 and 49 is good.

What is Ficm relay?

Fuel Injection Control Module (FICM) Relay FICM Relays are often overlooked, but provide the critical transfer of amperage from your charging system to your FICM. If your truck has more than 100,000 miles consider this as preventive maintenance. It may save you from a dead FICM.

What is Ficm on a 6.0 Ford?

On Ford 6.0L Powerstroke engines, the purpose of the Fuel Injection Control Module (FICM) is to supply 48 volts to the two solenoids that control pressurized oil flow to the fuel injector. The FICM uses a series of internal capacitors to turn the vehicle voltage (12-14.5 volts) into the 48-volt supply.

What should Ficm power on 6.0 Powerstroke?

FICM Main is always 48-48.5 whether running or first thing in the AM. Logic power goes up to 14.0 when under acceleration and 13.6 at idle. This is totally normal. The logic and vehicle power, or whatever they are, are supposed to be system voltage.

Where is the PCM on a 6.0 Powerstroke?

The PCM is mounted to the driver side fender and it will become accessible with the battery completely removed.

What does a 58v Ficm do?

The higher output voltage of our 58v FICM forces the fuel injector to open more quickly, which allows the fuel injector to flow slightly more fuel than the lower/stock voltage unit. The quicker action of the fuel injector also slightly advances the injection timing.

Where is the Ficm relay located?

The FICM Control Relay is the one that is closest to the engine and radiator (forward-right position).

What powerstroke to avoid?

What Years Are Ford Diesel Engines To Avoid? This Ford Super Duty six came out between 2003 and 2007. As far as diesel trucks go, 0L can be said to be the most horrendous. Powerstrokes with 0L capacity are notorious.

What does BulletProof mean for a diesel?

The fine folks at BulletProof Diesel define 6.0L Power Stroke as being “bulletproofed” when it has at least four of the five main problem areas addressed. These five areas are: Oil cooler, EGR cooler, head studs, fuel injection control module (FICM), and water pump.

What does it cost to bulletproof a 6.0 Powerstroke?

Bulletproof Diesel insists on their oil cooler. They say it lowers temperatures and prevents premature failures of the EGR cooler and injectors. And they’re right. But those benefits come in around $3000-$3500 installed!

What is the meaning of Ficm?

Abbreviation for: Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine.

Does a 7.3 have a Ficm?

It needs to be remembered that the FICM and/or IDM (7.3L) is actually controlling the high-pressure engine oil on the top of the injector to provide fuel delivery. The PCM and FICM communicate through what is known as a CAN (controller area network) circuit.

Where is Ficm fuse 6.0 Powerstroke?

RELAY – FORD OEM 6.0L FICM RELAY This relay is located under the hood on the drivers side fender well in the fuse panel next to the firewall.

Where is the Ficm on a 6.0 Powerstroke?

1 The FICM on this F-350 is mounted over the driver’s side valve cover. Before taking the FICM out of the truck, remove the service cover and do a diagnostic test (as outlined in the truck’s service manual) to see if it’s actually bad. 2 A simple voltmeter is all that’s needed to do the initial testing of the FICM.

What is a Ficm diesel?

The FICM is a unit in the diesel motor that controls the electrical impulses that open and close the fuel injectors. During the course of a diesel engine cycle, the engine starts with drawing the air in and compressing it.
