And it couldn't have come at a better time. My dealer just reflashed my computer and told me my FICM voltage was low.
I think I know what I'll be doing this weekend!

Quick question on the first page of your writeup - 4 pin FICM check.
It says to check the voltage with the key on, DO NOT START TRUCK. If I do this, my voltage is 48v, and the check procedure passes successfully.
The problem is that if I do start the truck my voltage drops down to 27v and stays there.
Since this is not mentioned in the check, I was wondering if I still need to repair my unit. I have read elsewhere that it also needs to be above 45V while the truck is running.
Just wanted to make sure before I tore into it.

That is correct the voltage should be above 45 volts at all times, if not your FICM has a problem.
