Customer Question
I have a 2012...

I have a 2012 Volvo 780 with a d13 and a 10 speed manual transmission. My DEF fluid sensor is showing empty and it put me in derate 5mph Max mode. I have disconnected the speed sensor from transmission to get around derate untill I can get to dealership 100 Miles away. It seems my rpms are limited to about 1500 is this normal? I can hear the def pump working and purging when I shut engine off and def tank is full. And how do I change sensor and it's location on def tank? I could not find any disconnected wires and small wire to battery is connected and has power. Can you please help me with this situation I can't necessarily afford a tow truck that's what the Volvo emergency services wanted on the weekend. When I get to maximum RPMs truck seems to have a jerking motion and when I let off accelerater a little bit it stops. Can you please help me out with this thank you.

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

Damn I forgot to give you that . Last 6 is cn558820

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

Am I safe. To run providing I don't run out of def

The jerking that you are talking about is because the default set rpms without VSS is 1500, This can do this when it is at default. What all fault codes are you getting
