Always check your fuel filter first they usually go before the pump does

you can try changing the ignition coil, I own a 97 Dodge 1500 and mine did the same and thats what i had to do.

It is my understanding that the fuel lft pump has been replaced( updated) and is now gone back to the old way and is re installed in the tank.
I have had to put 3 lift pumps in since new, little did I know but Cummins tells me that the lift pump delivers minimal pressure and shortens the life of your injector pump.
So if that is true perhaps it is best to eliminate the lift pump and go with the new in tank pump. I plan on doing it the next time I have a problem.

I had the same problem on a 94 dodge with the cummins. It seems the crank sensor that reads from a notch on the harmonic balancer was the problem Without this sensor reading that the engine is running the alternator wont charge. Possibly the same problem with yours

Diesel engines fire on compression alone (usually 400psi).The Truck may have air trapped in the fuel system.When you perform any fuel system repair on a diesel it is going to take alot of cranking to get the air out. You can take the breather loose and shoot a VERY small amount of starter fluid in the intake and it should start. Do not use starting fluid much as it can damage the engine. Good Luck.

The only way to reset the system is to disconnect battery cables for 10 minutes and before connecting the cables touch together to completely make sure there is no power left in the system
