What tools do you have at your disposal for diagnosing? This looks to be a faulty DEF tank level sensor to blame here. If you are stranded a reset may work and get you down the road a little farther to a repair facility. To do a reset you disconnect the auxiliary batter then disconnect the primary battery. On the primary you hold the cables together for one minute then reconnect both batteries 30 minutes later.

This is my 1st answer, but does not have to be my only answer. You the website and myself expect you to have a great experience with my help. Please let me know if you are pleased by selecting a star rating above or by replying and saying your pleased. Not rating or rating 1-2 stars does not benefit you nor me in any way. Follow up and reply as often and when needed, there is no extra charge to do so.

Thanks Moose.

Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 2 months ago.

Remove the battery cables and hold them together so the negative and positive are touching to discharge all electronics.

Hello again Chris here,

  • I am contacting you because the post has not been closed out/completed.
  • It appears you were not pleased with my help.
  • If more assistance is needed, reply and let me know, also let me know what it is you're needing to be pleased.
  • This post is coming up on the 7 day mark where it times out. When a post times out, that means it's no longer on my active list (you reply and I never know it.)
  • You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, and I do not want you to leave having paid for something that did not meet your wants/needs and myself not receiving a feedback selection from yourself.

Thanks Chris
