I do not have a ser # as I cannot read tag.
CM2150
It is in a motor home not a truck.
Technician: Scott Anthony, ASE Master Technician replied 2 years ago
Ok. Is the engine an ISB, ISC, or ISL? Freightliner chassis?
Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It is an ISL
Technician: Scott Anthony, ASE Master Technician replied 2 years ago
Ok I'll do my best to help, but things may be somewhat general in nature, since we can't identify the vehicle. Have you checked the fuel tanks?

Technician: Scott Anthony, ASE Master Technician replied 2 years ago
I'd start with the 1075-3, it indicates high voltage or open at the electric lift pump. There are some test that can be run to check it, but if it's not starting, and it's full of clean fuel, and no fuel leaks, you likely need a new electric lift pump.

I am a Caterpillar field Tech.I did notice that there is no noise coming from transfer pump if it is electric and I provided fuel pressure with external transfer pump 10 psi.It would only bark with ether only ?
How much fuel pressure should I have cranking ?and does it have a mechanical and electric fuel pump ?I am trying to get a photo of ser # plate as I cannot make heads or tales of ser # plate.
Technician: Scott Anthony, ASE Master Technician replied 2 years ago
It has electric lift pump on back of ECM, and a gear pump mounted on the injection pump. If I recall, anywhere between 8 - 20 with key on, on pressure side of lift pump, and must be at least 20 psi during cranking on pressure side of gear pump.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The electric pump is grounded by ECM or powered by ECM ?
Technician: Scott Anthony, ASE Master Technician replied 2 years ago
BothIt monitors current. Thst fault 1075-3 is specific to the voltage being returned to ECM.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Thanks Scott.I am going to have to try and track electrical down or run some voltage to pump and see if it fires off.I thought if I introduced fuel pressure to secondary fuel filter that it would do the same thing though it was only 10psi at least enough for Mechanical transfer pump to build up ?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Can you send me drawing on how electric pump is energized ?
I am still trying to get photo of ID plate buried on timing cover in Motor home ?
Technician: Scott Anthony, ASE Master Technician replied 2 years ago
Well don't worry about serial number, ivery got the ISL manual pulled up, should be close enough. Give me a few but I'll send you the troubleshooting steps from Cummins, it has a diagram.
