I just got my new Auto Enginuity cable today. The check engine light is not on, and there are no FICM codes. Tht AE Live Data Meter says that my FICM voltage is 47.5V, is that too low? The check engine light is not on, and there are no FICM codes.
I took the truck for a ride, most of the time the voltage was at 47.5V but several times I saw it drop to 46.5V. When I have, I will have to take the FICM apart to check it out for the bad solder connections.
Does it run rough or miss any? low on power or responce?
All would be considered a suspect FICM but 47 volts is not that alfull bad, some drop to 32 volts

Last night I read on another board that Ford the spec is 45V. I am going to leave it alone for now, it sounds like it is ok. When I get some free time I may take it apart to check out the soldering, but that won't be anytime soon.
