I am getting a DEF/AdBlue warning light and a check engine

I am getting a DEF/AdBlue warning light and a check engine light. I am very familiar with DEF fluid and what it does. I just purchased this Sprinter and drove it to D.C. over the weekend. About half way down I was getting a beep along with a very small wrench symbol and a 43d code on the dash. It would come and go about every 15 minutes. about half way on the return trip I then got a check engine light and DEF indicator light that came on and have stayed on. I checked and topped off the DEF fluid before I left Pittsburgh and checked it when I returned and it was mostly full. Any suggestions?JA: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?Customer: Both the check engine light and the DEF/AdBlue light stay on at this point. The wrench and 43d come on about every 15 minutes of run time.JA: Are you fixing your Sprinter yourself? What have you tried so far?Customer: I was going to attempt fixing it myself because I can't get in to the dealer until the 1st of November. All I know for sure is that the DEF fluid is full. I filled it before I left on the trip and checked it when I returned.JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?Customer: Not that I can think of
