The FICM is the fuel injector control module. I would say that if you have multiple injector codes the first place to start would be the FICM. It's possible that the injectors all failed at the same time, or there is a fuel restriction problem affecting multiple injectors, but it's more likely that the FICM is bad. They go bad fairly often.

You will need to pull the old programming off of the FICM to load onto the new FICM. This can normally only be done with a ford IDS scan tool. I don't know if there is a company that sells them pre-programmed because we have an IDS tool in my fleet and have never needed to try sourcing one with programming.

Here is the diagram that shows the location and another that shows common faults with the FICM.
