Won't start Code 61-1

2007 Fit. Car wouldn't start, turns over fine seems that battery is ok, but won't start.
No problems beforehand.
Code is 61-1 "Battery Voltage Malfunction".
Any ideas?
Thanks!

Does you scanner support live data?
If so does it show rpm and ignition timing while cranking?
Do the fuel pump comes on upon turning the key on?

I could not hear the pump come on when the key was set to on.
Lead check confirmed that power is going to pump.
Having pump replaced now.

The mechanic told me over the phone that the tank would have to be taken out to get to pump. I told him that pump is accessible under trip between seats (as I saw on quite a few U-Tube videos.) He said he would check that out. Am I correct?

Yes, it is accessible by removing the center console. Our fuel pump died a couple of years ago. You made it further than we did

Perhaps not, my 2007 Fit only has about 130k miles and has been driven easy it's whole life.

Ended up costing about $680 with $440 in part(s)

Fuel pumps die with time more than use. I'm pretty sure ours died due to ethanol corrosion. It didn't look pretty coming out.

Besides corroding everything it comes in contact with, Ethanol will also gel if it sits for more than 30 days or so. If you had old fuel in your tank many times, that can kill the pump as well.
