Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this here.Unfortunately there is no reset you can do yourself here.What you can try is to fill the def tank all the way and see if it resets then as this sometimes works.Adding only a pint or two usually won’t work as it has to be filled.
If it does not work then a dealer will need to check fault codes to see what faults are set for the fed warning your seeing as it should not come on with 1/2 tank full.
This may be the def tank level sensor at fault needing replaced or another component needing replaced.
Unfortunately if it is continued to be driven like this it can limit the speed into this fail safe mode.So you can try to top off the tank and see what happens from there within a few minutes or operate it to the dealer or have it towed for checking.Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help here.A 5 star rating is appreciated and we can continue here still if needed anytime.Thanks Pete

Thanks Pete,
It turned out there was a recall on the catalytic converter and the repair was covered by the recall. The light was triggered from back pressure from the converter according to the dealer

Your welcome

Glad it is being repaired under a recall.If you need anything else let me know.

Thanks Pete
