Still sounds like a FICM issue. I'm not sure if your warranty has expired yet. But if so here is a thread from another site that might be helpful. It's my next step.

That is the first time I have heard off a way to test out a ficm without you getting a code first. I will be trying this in the next few days. Thanks

Did you check the screw on the FICM with a multimeter? Check with key on engine not running, check when injectors are buzzing, then with engine started. J ust did mine today. I had 48 volt w/ key on, 46 when buzzing, 41 when running. Removed FICM, took it apart, solderedit like the 1 thread said. I then put it back in the truck. I did the test again, 48 volts key on, 48 volts buzzing, 48.2 when running. I haven't road tested yet, But the injectors are buzzing louder again.

Truck seems to idle smoother, still takes about 8 seconds of cranking before it fires up though. I also still have P2552 code, I haven't figured that one out yet.

Seems to have the power back. I'm afraid to press the small pedal too far toooo quick; as I have just recently dropped a grand for new sneakers on it. Did you take a multimeter and check the voltage on the screw head? It's real easy , remove the 2 screws on the degas bottle, slide out of the way a little, remove the 2 screws on the cover, remove the cover, then get someone to run the key while you check with the meter.
