Hi Kiesha, My name is***** will be glad to try to help. Please check for more fault codes as there are likely more codes with your 5246 code which just means the engine was derated due to other fault codes allowed to remain active for too long. This means the check engine light has been on for other faults but the truck kept running so the ECM finally Derated the power until the faults are corrected. We need to know the other faults so we can know what circuit the problem is in.

CODEREASONEFFECT

Fault Code: 3712
PID: P105
SPN: 5246
FMI: 0
LAMP: Red
SRT:

Aftertreatment SCR Operator Inducement - Data Valid But Above Normal Operating Range - Most Severe Level. Critical SCR related fault codes have been active for an extended period of time and require immediate attention.

Immediate engine power derate. Vehicle speed will be limited to 8 km [5 miles] per hour.

If there are no other active codes and no other faults and "Everything" is new then have Cummins Reflash/reprogram the ECM with the most current updates and your problem will likely resolve as long as there are no active faults present.

The other code is 1569.It also comes up with body control module not sure if that helps any.
Technician: Daniel Wilson,
 replied 6 years ago

This fault is informational only alerting of an engine derate.

CODE REASON EFFECT

Fault Code: 3714
PID: S115
SPN: 1569
FMI: 31
LAMP: Amber
SRT:

Engine Protection Torque Derate - Condition Exists. Critical fault codes related to engine operation are active.

Immediate engine power derate.

The body control module will be on the Ford chassis side. To read that you would need the Ford software and computer plugged into it. Has this been into Ford for computer diagnostics or just the Cummins dealer?

Here are the codes as of now 2003, 2011, 5246, and 1569. If it makes things easier i will pay the $18 to talk about this truck on the phone. We own a wrecker service and this truck being down this long has really hurt our business.
