Hi, my name is ***** ***** motor do you have in this?

diesel
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 1 year ago.
Ok, the DEF light should go off by itself once driven faster than 10 mph, but you say it wont start right now, is this correct?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
yes it will not start
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 1 year ago.
ok, then you need to do a hard reset, to do this, you insert theb key, and turn it one click forward to the number 1 position, and leave it there for 30 seconds, then turn the key off, this will reset the DEF systm, and it should statrt, can you try this?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
what is the bkey
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 1 year ago.
I am sorry, that was a typo, its suppose to say "KEY",Tim
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
that did not work
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 1 year ago.
when you turn the key on, does it start so many starts before disabled?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
yes it is usually 4 we put fluid in and it started fine then the next time it will not start
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 1 year ago.
did the message still say 4 starts, after adding and driving faster than 10 mph?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no other message dispalyed
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 1 year ago.
ok, then if the message is not there now, its most likely not the DEF system causing the no start, do all the dash lites come on when the key is on? is this a manual trans or an automatic?
