I have a 2013 Cascadia that is blinking the low DEF light,

I have a 2013...

I have a 2013 Cascadia that is blinking the low DEF light, but the gauge reads full & I just filled it as full as possible but light is still blinking & yellow & red check/ stop engine lights are on & truck is sedated down to 5 mph. How can I reset the derate so that I can get to a dealer to get it fixed?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

Vin= 1FUJGLDR1DSBS2172

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?

Ok
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 4 years ago

ok

you have emission codes that have put it in derate and turned on the lights. I need those codes to further help you find the issue.

there is no reset. a factory scan tool can clear codes but this will not clear since it is active. it needs to be diagnosed, repairs made and re gened. if it is successful, then the lights will go out on there own.

ok, those 3 codes are what you gave me. this is where you need a laptop with the DDDL prgram. that will see all the codes.

at this point you are stuck. there is nothing you can do but get it towed to a shop and checked.

it will not regen due to active code for the emission system. it will not run a regen with an active code.

I wonder if I disconnected the harness connection from the DEF tank and disconnected the battery if it would reset the derate so that I can get to a dealer?
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 4 years ago

again, there is no reset. disconnecting the batteries will do nothing. if you disconnect the def tank you will set another code.
