I've had no luck with the prime per the procedure mentioned...I been eyeing the fuse method and will try that on my next filter change. I have cycled the key up to 5 times and still get a prolong crank before starting...hate that.
Ram if you are listening...just add a damn switch under the hood on the fuse box to prime the system. Would be an easy aftermarket mod to do...if someone was willing....a fuse tap and a momentary switch.

I don’t see how it would keep running otherwise if the manual has to explain how to bump the starter on keyed trucks to initiate the prime...?
Anyway, I don’t want to derail this thread too much.

Its the same procedure if you run out of fuel in order to prime the system again. Its in the owners manual. If I remember correctly...as @10%more mentioned.....you place the truck (push button or key) in the run position without putting your foot on the brake pedal for 30 seconds (Do not start the truck or attempt to). Then hit the button/Key again to turn it off. Then repeat this same step, you must do it twice. When you place it in the run position you can hear the fuel pump pumping fuel then in about 30 seconds it stops. Then you do it again...this fills the filters up and pushes out the air. If there's any excess fuel it will return to the tank via the return line. I think this is where it pushes out the air but I may be wrong. There isn't any need to bleed the system, at least I never had to in any of my previous Cummins trucks.
Cycling the key: This is moving the key/push button and placing the button/key into the run position without actually starting the truck (do not place your foot on the break pedal so the truck will not turn over).

Is there a place to bleed the air? I always appreciated the Duramax trucks I had with the bleeder screw and priming pump.
