injector driver module problem

does anybody have any idea where I can get an Injector Driver Module for a 2000 7.3 Stroke? At 118,000 miles mine went out. I had it in for warranty work before the warranty went out, and they couldn't find the problem. Well, it raised it's ugly head, and the Stroker starts cutting out. It finally did it while in the Ford garage on the computer.
I need some cheap help on where to get one, and how to change it!

Thanks, Z-28

Re: injector driver module problem

Some have bought them on Ebay??? I would try Fordpartsonline as I don't trust Ebay for electronic parts like this.

Re: injector driver module problem

Usually when the truck throws an IDM code, it's because the under valve cover (UVC) clips aren't making proper contact. It's a cheap service call to replace the UVC clips. When the clips are acting up, the wiring harness that fires the injecters doesn't act right. Mine went out again last week, and the engine would barely run so I could drive it the 4 miles to the Ford house. But nothing was wrong with the IDM - just the UVC clips.

Re: injector driver module problem

What Smokey said.... If you retrieve any IDM codes, it doesn't mean replace the IDM.... it means look for a problem in this area....

If it was as simple as some seem to think, I'd spend my day hanging out at the soup kitchen....

Re: injector driver module problem

I found out that the IDM was bad after a short was found under the driver's side valve cover. The tech said that after he ran another scan on the smart box, it showed that the IDM was still bad. He told me that short can cause the IDM to go bad. After I drove the truck home from the shop, it started to act up again.
Is E-bay or Fordpartsonline the only place to find a reasonably priced IDM??????

Re: injector driver module problem

I like these guys for parts.

Not e-bay cheap, but reasonable, they always treat me like family (or better).

Did you remove the power pup before diagnosis?....R

Yes, I removed the program before it read the code.

Re: injector driver module problem

One other question,Rustler, I tried to find on the website that you like, but couldn't find the module anywhere . Maybe, I just don't know where to look!

Re: injector driver module problem

I always call to order parts and didn't look for a IDM before posting. If you try them in the morning they may be able to help.

Didn't mean to send you on a wild goose chase...R

Re: injector driver module problem

The online parts places all use the same catalog, and it's pretty lame. It completely misses things like our CPS, and a lot of other diesel stuff. Other items are there, but buried somewhere that you'd never think to look.

Here's what you need
XC3Z-12B599-AA
I just searched for it under their OEM Part # search, and they want $554.42 with a $100 core.
Fordparts.com (the online parts house I usually use) beats that by about $10 (still with the core charge)

The $200+/- (&no core charge) new IDM's on eBay sound better all the time. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shrug.gif[/img]

Sorry to rain on your parade, but:

They also sound like stolen merchandise.

Big newspaper article recently about professional thief gangs that use E-Bay and similar on-line outfits to fence their stolen goods. If the price for new stuff is below dealer cost, then it's probably stolen merchandise. FBI knows about it and is working the problem, but there are few FBI agents and many, many selfish, dirty, rotten, nasty crooks in the world. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

When you buy stolen merchandise, you are encouraging theft.

Re: injector driver module problem

My truck kept throwing the same IDM codes while missing, knocking, etc. Dealer said needed new IDM. I bought brand new in unopened box off ebay for several hundred dollars less than I could anywhere else, from a very high volume ebay seller. Turned out the problem had nothing to do with the IDM, so now I have my original in the garage (just in case).
My problem was the same as stated earlier...valve cover connections. Mine was the injector connections at the v/cover gaskets. I replaced the cover gaskets (same ebay seller as IDM), and had a local guys do the harness repairs. Later, two more of the injector pigtails had to be replaced. I bought them from the local Navstar truck dealer for about $3 each, and replaced them myself in a couple hours. That was several thousand miles ago, and no problems.

Re: injector driver module problem

Our 2001 F-450 7.3 stopped running last friday so I came on this site to trouble shoot and found a link to an ebay supplier who sold us the IDM for $320 including shipping. I was quoted $1041 before shipping from our local Ford dealer. Ordered the IDM from the supplier in Florida on 8/2, and it was delivered to Maui on 8/4, and truck is running great.

I imagine that there's lots of stolen stuff on eBay. But just because something is being sold cheap doesn't mean it's stolen, so it's not good to accuse someone of buying stolen merchandise without knowing all the facts. If you want to report them for selling stolen merchandise, the company I bought the IDM from is
Auto Computer Exchange

Re: injector driver module problem

Thanks to all for the info. I ordered an IDM off of an E-bay vendor. It is a oem, new in box IDM. I too agree that nearly all of the E-bay vendors with a good reputation are trust-worthy. I do use the feedback info. I need to get my stroker back on the road, and will for about $700 less than it was going to cost me at the Ford garage.
thanks again,
Z-28

Re: injector driver module problem

One Last Question on IDM's ... are these modules already to go from Ford, or do they need to "programed" before they are ready to go? I am waiting for mine to come in, and hope that they are ready to plug and play!!!!
