Can you see what the float and heater are reading from your Tech II? How much has it been driven since?

Try driving it about 10-20 more miles if you can to see if it resets. If not then you need to double check that the system shows all three level sensors are active. If that is also fine the reductant sensors may have an issue.

We drove it 20 miles! And system has not Reset! We have verified all 3 level sensors are working!!
GMC Mechanic: FIX IT MAN, Master Technician replied 2 years ago

If all three level sensors are working and if the reductant sensors appear to be working then the module may be bad. Are the parts that you used from the dealer?
