yes three time3s.
light goes off in 3 seconds; getting error code P0513.
When I turn the key, the engine will crank continuously, but won't start. When I turn the key on and wait 10 seconds, the red light is not flashing.
The red light goes out and stays out. We have tried disconnecting the battery for overnight but it did not fix it.
Sorry. I'm relaying information. I did not realize it was still cranking. Now I know thatit did start and stall three times, but it IS cranking over.
The lifter pump is working. There is fuel in the tank. Getting fuel all the way through the fuel filter to the engine.
But if it matters, the pump runs when the key is turned to the run position, but it does not stop after two seconds, it keeps running.
Again, I am relaying information. It is a 3500 with a Cummins diesel engine.
Still working on what you said. Have it ready to go, but needed to hook up to another car because the battery was getting down a bit. Should be able to tell you the result soon.
Please respond so I will have a link to send you my next message.
The engine did start but stayed running only briefly - apparently just burning off the starting fluid. It did not stay running.
It just started all of a sudden.
No other fault codes. I'm checking the fault codes with the key cycle procedure.
The no. 4 injector line is not leaking, and no other leaks are noticed.
Also, did you receive my message about whether the security system cuts of the fuel such that it could still be a problem?
Not able to check on these things. No scan tool, and can't access the lines regarding the transfer pump and HP pump.
Probably going to have to wrap it up on this end. A couple of last questions.
Just so we will know, does the security system stop the engine by cutting off the fuel, or is it something else - perhaps electronic?
If you had to guess at this point, would you guess it is something in the fuel delivery, and if so, what? (Clogged fuel line, inoperable pump, etc.?)
Lastly - thanks so much for your help. We may not have figured this out, but being able to check out some possible issues, and eliminating some (such as the security system) is great. Unfortunately, he is 400 miles from home and trying to get back to his wife from a week at the Army Reserves. But as I said, at least doing what we could is a positive.
Thanks again. I rated you Excellent!
