I'd restart it and check oil pressure. If it's OK turn in on and off a couple of times. It might just be a sensor.

When my fuel filter gets clogged, I get the same message from the ECM.

If all else fails.....

remove negative (ground) cable form battery bank....
wait 5 minutes...
reconnect cable


this will allow any non-permanent error codes to be "forgotten" by the computer memory

On my maiden voyage I got the Stop Engine light and had the coach towed 40 miles unnecessarily... as it turns out. It was just low coolant level which got exagerated while going up the steep Grapevine grade near L.A.

Check coolant level... it's worth a shot.

Do you have CoachNet?

When you check coolant don't trust the sight gauge...use some kind of stick to measure...I use a flag stick.

I had this happen on my 02 Diplomat. When I called Good Sam, they put me in touch with a Cummins person that could come and check the codes. He told me there are only two reasons for a stop engine light. Cooling level, or oil pressure. There were two oil pressure sensors on mine, one for the stop engine light, and one for the gauge. The light sensor had failed. He removed the wire from the sensor which turned off the stop engine light, which allowed the engine to get me home, as it went into limp mode which is barely off idle. It told me over and over to watch the manual gauge, as I have no backup now. Sensor was on drivers side of engine, with a single wire run to it. Good Sam paid the entire fee for him as there were no parts purchased. That event paid for a few years of the service!

larry, A leak at the water pump bearing can cause coolant loss. I would suggest you check it out before it fails on the road.
I didn't check my water pump for a leak and that oversight was quite expensive, not to mention inconvenient.

Hopefully your windsor is not a diesel engine, if it is prestone 50/50 is not the right antifreeze for a diesel. I had a leak I could never trace on my 2005 dynasty with a cummins 400 isl. The level would drop in the overflow tank but never overheat or go low enough to set off alarm. I could never find a wet spot under or on the radiator or connections. Finally had to take to cummins to pressure test. They found some loose clamps, even though I had tighten all the ones I could see. Now I am good to go....just something you might check...

The closest (to you) Cummins dealers I am aware of are Southern Plains in Amarillo and one in Clovis, NM but i don't know the name. Good luck
