Had to change the batteries. Once new batteries were on

Customer Question

Had to change the batteries. Once new batteries were on tried to start the truck. It will turn over but will not fire. The check engine light is flashing and does not stop when the key is on. Also the sensor on the high pressure injection pump is clicking in unison with the flashing of the check engine light.
JA: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?
Customer: Blink
JA: What is the model/year of your Dodge?
Customer: 2006 3500 5.9 Cummins
JA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: myself. Checked all the battery connections and all the fuses. It is all good.
JA: Anything else you want the Mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No

Hello and welcome to just answer. My name is Chris and I will assist you today. I am sorry you are having this problem but hopefully I can help. So this all happened after the batteries were replaced? It ran okay before this?

Yes

Sounds like the ECM is acting up. Disconnect the negative battery cables for 10 minutes and then reconnect them and try again.

Already tried that
Expert:  Chris replied 9 days ago.

Do you have a scan tool that you can use to check sensor data and codes from the ECM?

i do not.
Expert:  Chris replied 9 days ago.

See if you can borrow one or rent one from your auto parts store. Having that would be a huge help.
