ok, thanks. the first thing I would do is check the wiring harness very carefully for any areas that are damaged. check all grounds as well. look at fuse boxes and check fuses with test light for power.

it would be odd for all these issues to happen at the same time.

lets start with checking the harness


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Any wiring harness in particular - we actually went right for that this morning based on what we read on the forums. We unplugged a few sprayed them with cleaner and plugged them back in... specifically most of the plugs next to the relay box behind the intake. We did a minor check of the fuel injector harness which looked to run under the intake as well.

look at all the harness, not just the connectors, if the heads were removed, the harness were moved and you need to check and see if they are laying on the head or areas of heat that may have damaged to wiring. there are many harness around the motor. check each one carefully for any damage

Well I've identified the primary wiring harness - we will go through and check it

we have checked the wiring harness pretty completely and found nothing that looked melted or chafed or significantly damaged in anyway. There were a couple, maybe 2 or 3, that had a crack in the plastics or tape but beneath the wires look great. We pulled all the connectors and cleaned them with electrical cleaner including the 3 to the ECM which is my boyfriend's latest theory. He is considering going and buying one at NAPA... any thoughts or better next steps?

yhe FICM is a common failure for this model.

do you have a scan tool to monitor data??? I would like to see if the high pressure oil pump is priming the system.


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No scan tool to monitor data... and we don't know if the pump is priming the system.

When you are trying to start it, have you noticed if the oil pressure takes longer than usual to come up on the gage?
