Customer Question
We have a 2004...

We have a 2004 5.9 cummins that we replaced the fuel pump and we are still not getting fuel to start

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you ever replaced the fuel pump, or is this the original?

Just replaced the original

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '04 Dodge?

3500

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 3500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes we are it stopped running and it threw a code of p2509 and we got it to start and got it home then we saw that it wasn't getting fuel so we changed the fuel pump

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I am thinking that we could have an issue with ecm or fuel injection pump also

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

If the transfer pump isn't running yet the pump is new then the problem could be wiring, or it could definitely be because the ECM isn't operable for whatever reason. It's going to require some testing to determine exactly what is wrong.

When you turn the key on do you hear the injectors ticking for about a minute?

Not at all
Dodge Mechanic: sprinkles08, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep master tech replied 3 months ago

You'll want to use a scan tool to confirm that the ECM isn't awake then. If not and fuses are good then the ECM has either failed internally, is missing a power or ground feed, a 5v reference voltage circuit is shorted to ground, or a sensor ground circuit has shorted to voltage. Electrical testing will need to be done to determine whether the problem is internal ECM failure or there is an external cause taking it down.

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.
