Won’t start, died on the road. Had code P2509, changed batteries, checked all fuses next to battery and they were good. Disconnected fan clutch harness and still doesn’t start but nor connector pin is corroded off, the code scanner shows 84 psi fuel pressure but I am unsure about whether this is accurate since the truck is not running. What would my next step be in diagnosing the problem?

    This bulletin involves selectively erasing and reprogramming the Powertrain Control
    Module (Cummins PCM) with new software.

    Did you recently add any equipment that required grounding on the fender ground bolt? That ground in particular is sensitive to alteration and can cause that code if not tightened enough when reinstalled. Located pretty much right in the middle of the battery on the drivers side fender. It bolts right through with a 10 or 12mm bolt I think.
