It's strange because it was starting fine before I changed the fuel filter.

Wouldn't I hear the starter trying to turn even if it wasn't primed?
yes those 2 systems should not be interconnected. check your battery water when you check your battery's and clean the connections. a bad ground will not cause a parasitic loss but will cause all sorts of other crazy ****. electron flow goes out of the negative thru the body/frame and back thru the component to positive terminal on battery(after you enable the switch that is).

I have a 5.9 cummins with an Allison automatic.

Anyone have any advice on how to fill the fuel filter housing back up?
any chance your door interlocks could be causing a no start condition?

5.9 Cummins usually has a fuel filter housing on the left side of the engine near the back. In other words, the intake side of the engine near the transmission end. The housing is roughly a cylinder 6 inches diameter and 7 inches high. It'll have two fuel lines connected to the top of the housing with banjo bolts. The top of the housing is mounted to the engine while the bottom is removable after the nut in the center of the housing lid is removed.

If yours looks like this...The filter element is inside the canister unscrew the lid.


There should be another filter under the bus. it's also a water separator. Follow the fuel lines.
