Default Repairing FICM

I found this and thought it might help out someone who is in a pinch and has to fix there own FICm to get back on the road, just make sure you follow ddirections and make sure you take the small cover off and remove the 4 or7 onearly models, screws because they are attaching the board and if you try to pry cover off without removing them you could crack board. so here it is.http://www.bscustoms.net/diesel/FICM.pdf

Its all there in this post on how to do it, just did my first resolder, took all of 10 minutes to open it up and solder, anything more involved would take quite a bit of time, there are some tiny parts in there.

I hear ya, think it helps overcome the stiction issues, the injectors are rated for 60v I believe so them running on 48v is giving up some potential.

Bob, my guess is you haven't had the great opportunity of soldering one where the resistor flys off the board when you re-flow one side? That's always a good time.

Use a good quality solder guys and make sure to put new staking compound back down when you get it fixed.

Dying to try and get the 58V done man. I can't keep a FICM on the shelf long enough right now. Sourcing the parts for that was not easy, most places want you to buy a minimum quantity, like in the 1000's range.

Mdub try this out, get yourselt a small wood dowl, can even use chop sticks to hold the parts down when resoldering, you can even tape on a little weight to help hold it down.

Just keep in mind where most people screw up is too much heat for too long
