DDEC 1 Check Engine Light Confusion
The last time to put my coach in storage, I noticed that the check engine light was very faintly blinking when idling. All of the gauges looked normal, so I shut her down and checked all of the fluid levels.

Everything looked normal, oil, transmission, and a nice green site glass. So I decided to tap on the side of the coolant tank and it sure sounded hollow, so I decided to get some Fleet charge and add about a half gallon of 50/50 mix. I ran the engine for a few minutes and no check engine light but the tank still sounded hollow, so I added about a gallon more mix (with about a pint pouring on my head and shoulders when I wasn't paying attention to the funnel...)

Now when I start the engine, I get a solid check engine light. I also noticed that the lower half of the sight glass is no longer green, but more the color of the Fleet charge. So I am thinking that I need to add more coolant, but I thought that I would press the engine test button and decode the blinky lights to see what my DDEC 1 was complaining about.

So, I stared at the blinky lights and they didn't make much sense to me. The manual says that there will be about a 3 second pause between codes, which will be one or more flashed for the first digit, then a 1/2 second pause, then one or more flashes for the second part of the code. Mine seems to be a little different.

Can anybody help me understand what my DDEC 1 is trying to tell me? In the video, the engine is running at normal idle. Near the end of the video, I show the temp and oil pressure gauges and switch to high idle to show the oil pressure moving.

Here are the engine codes.

Check all ground points.

Problem mostly went away when I reseated the connectors going into the DDEC box on top of the engine. Will get load tested and check grounds anyway since I still have some random (or maybe not random...) check engine flashing

For completeness, in case someone is reading this thread in the future, here is a link to what I discovered when plugging in a diagnostic code reader (Pro Link 9000) to pull the codes.
