The module that you replaced........where is it located?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
it was the front control module that is connected to the fuse box

Thanks for clarifying that, your original description was a bit misleading.

Ok, when I first read your post, I figured the FCM was the likely suspect. Having replaced it already lessens that chance, but used ones are just that...........no guarantee that they are any better than what you removed.

There are many times that we end up changing both the FCM and the underhood fuse box at the same time due to corrosion in the fuse box. Since all the FCM circuits have to travel through the fuse box it ia hard to tell which one is causing the issue.

What I would suggest is to replace both of them, the FCM and the fuse box.

Hope that helps.....

When you are satisfied that I have answered your question, please provide a 5 star rating since this is how your expert is compensated for taking time out of their day to assist you. However, if you need any more info please reply back to me before you provide any rating, Thanks again!

does the fuse box have to be programmed to my truck?

No, no programming required.

Forgot to mention that that the park lamp relay in the fuse box was buzzing pretty load and vibrating off and on would this be caused by the bad fuse box and FCM

Most likely, yes.

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
