Exclamation DTC P0611 - FICM Performance

This code recently started showing up when I scan my truck. Runs fine, no CEL being set, running stock tuning. I've reset it a few times, but it returns after a few drive cycles.

Local dealer won't even look at the truck unless it sets a CEL.

Anyone run into this before?

Thanks in Advance!

Mark

I've had a few dealerships give me the "standard" answer of "unless it sets a CEL." So I use the "standard" complaint. Lacks power and it's missing!

They should look at it with any CEL "OR" running/driveability issue/complaint.

I had one in our shop last week with P0611, ended up replacing the FICM. Check to make sure fuses are all seated properly in PDB. Most likely will need new FICM.

I also came up with the P0611 a couple of weeks ago. Last week, I also developed 8 more injector related codes ( one for each injector but I don't remember what they were). Never set the CEL. The next morning, the engine would crank but not start. It would fire a couple of times while cranking, but then shut right back down. Like djshum said, it required a new FICM.

Took it in today and the dealer found that it was actually the FICM that needed replacing. Was setting P0611, P0273 before I took it in. They found a P0275 in addition when they scanned it. All related to the FICM or connections to specific injectors. Running great now with no codes. The scary thing is the CEL was still not being set, so unless one is looking for the problem, you won't see it until running conditions show up. It totalled over $1,000 ($100 under warranty), so this is definitely something to look for yourself before your warranty runs out. 72k on my truck as of today.

I will say, I was hesitant taking the truck back to my local dealer. I haven't always had the best impression, but they did an outstanding job this time. Tested fuel pressure, EBP, and everything else related. They didn't even blink at my regulated return or Airdog. I may have to be open that they've improved dramatically.

the other morning i also had 8 injector codes. also 2 other codes P0266 ( cylinder 2 un balanced) and P0611. you speek of this ficm module harness do you think it could be this causeing these codes? truck has been starting rough now for quite awhile just in the morning when it is cold it seems to hammer hard for 30 seconds before cleaning up. took the truck to ford the other day and they reprogrammed it, now it over fuels when it never use to. this is my first diesel truck so im kinda new with the problems. what u think?

there is a tsb for a p0611 ficm performance for a pushed out/loose fuse, but usually if injector driver circuit low(p283,p275 etc) are tripped as well, you'll be needing a new ficm, i forget which pin you run a fused wire to ground at connector c of the ficm and check all of your voltages, if they are all 12v, replace ficm and retest, had a few harnesses chaffing around the back of the intake and such as well. I did a snap to connect fitting on the high pressure pump on an e350 started it and did a engine running test and had a whole bunch of injector circuit codes, cleared them, did an key on engine off injector click test and on demand for hard faults and they disappeared, first thing you should do is clear the codes and make sure the codes are hard faults.

It was the FICM, not the harness, that was the problem on mine. Another sign I should have picked up on was that the voltage to the FICM was dropping from 48 to 40 volts after it started; should have stayed steady at 48. Must have been a short somewhere within. Running great since they replaced.

I will NEVER let any of the FORD dealers near me zip 08550 touch my truck.
They are incompetent and overpriced.
