I have an 05 dura ***** ***** diesel pickup. Often truck

Customer Question

I have an 05 dura ***** ***** diesel pickup. Often truck starts rough and runs on maybe 4 cylinders. After repeated removal of ign and injector fuses and restarting it will finally run on all 8 cylinders like nothing happened. Codes are po208 injector circuit open cylinder 8 and p2149 group b fuel injector supply voltage circuit open.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I can't give you much more than I just did?
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Chevy Mechanics generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

My impression is that this is the sign of a failing FICM. FICM supplies power to the fuel injectors, and it does so in two banks. I actually have one of these in the shop right now that is getting a new FICM. They are a lot of money, but if you are losing power to 4 injectors at once, short of a wiring issue, it's likely going to be the FICM.
