Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will gladly assist you with your question today. I would like to start just to clarify by asking when you added the 3 gallons of DEF did the orange light go away? The engine will derate and a red stop engine light will occur if the DEF level gets too low. I assume by filling up the DEF tank that problem has now been resolved. (please let me know if it has not) For the crank no start, does the priming pump buzz at key on? sounds as tho you may have air in the lines and the system needs to be purged. if the priming pump does buzz yet there is still no crank, crack injector lines to ensure there is fuel, once fuel is seen at each line if it will still not start that will signal there is an additional issue. Please confirm my questions and I will be glad to assist further if that does not solve the problem.

Adding DEF did not change the gauge nor the orange light. I have not been out to see if the pump is buzzing. It does the normal pre start clicks. I have a feeling the DEF issue is the cause for the no start. I will go out and see if that pump is priming.

There is no buzzing coming from anywhere. The dashboard is beeping, I assume because the stop engine light is on.

Thank you for confirming, I found an article that will not fix the situation but may make for an interesting read: http://blog.ryder.com/2014/07/dont-let-diesel-exhaust-fluid-disrupt-business/

Anyhow, per your current problem:

This issue could be caused by a few things, when the DEF system is exposed to air the DEF fluid will crystallize. I have seen entire systems ruined by this (not saying yours is, just stating a fact) I would begin by verifying there is no leak in the DEF system, using a refractometer to verify that the DEF in the system is within specification, and then performing tests to verify that the pump and the dosing valve are functioning properly. You also need to check the fuel system to ensure you are getting fuel at each injector, this can be performed by priming the system and cracking each injector line until you see a few drops of fuel leak out. If there is no buzzing sound present then your priming pump may have failed. With no fault codes and only being able to assist via the internet I don't want to start jumping to conclusions. In my experience with these systems they are very touchy, and the slightest issue will set them off. I do believe however that the problem is within the SCR system and not an engine fuel issue. I have attached some information on common fault codes to troubleshoot the system, I feel performing the procedures may be helpful. If you do not have the Cummins Insight program I recommend bringing it into a shop where they can hook up and verify the parameters of the system for you. If you have any questions please let me know! When you are ready please take a moment to rate my service. I hope I have provided adequate assistance, have a wonderful day!
