I live out of town. I had an error water in fuel but couldnt get rid of code by draining filter. tried a few times and finally wouldnt start so had it towed to dealer. Tech said needed new fuel pump. $1,000 for parts and $1,000 labour. Less than 1,000 km later code again and not even a tiny ball of water in filter.. Code wont go away. I want to get it to town. How long can i go with the error code on before I cant go any more and need a tow?

When you pull out the fuel filter can you use a dollar store turkey baster to suck out the remaining diesel and then spray with brake clean? It will remove any residual moisture from water and maybe the sensor is bad.

Also have you tried disconnecting batteries overnight for a hard ECM reset?

Have you tried adding and running a QUALITY diesel fuel treatment like Diesel Kleen, Howes or optilube? All three are proven diesel fuel treatments. Cummins even endorses Diesel Kleen by Power service.
