Follow these guidelines to check for fault codes on any Freightliner Cascaida with a DD15 engine.Key on, Engine off.
Placed unit in neutral.
Locate the square black button on the odometer screen.
Using the black button cycle through the options displayed on the odometer reading until it reads “diagnose”.
Hold the button until the display shows “faults”.
From there it will show you the number of active faults in the system.
Again using the black button cycle through the “faults” to observe the SPN and FMI.

SPNFMILamp ColorDescription

409431AmberNOx Limits Exceeded Due to Insufficient Reagent Quality - Condition Exists

Reason

NOx Limits Exceeded Due to Insufficient Reagent Quality - Condition Exists. The diesel exhaust fluid quality is not sufficient enough to provide adequate mono-nitrogen oxides (NOx) reduction.

Effect

Possible engine power derate. Vehicle speed may also be limited.

Component Location

The location of the diesel exhaust fluid tank is original equipment manufacturer (OEM) dependent. The selective catalytic reduction (SCR) catalyst and aftertreatment NOx sensors are located in the vehicle's exhaust system.

Circuit Description

The engine control module (ECM) monitors the mono-nitrogen oxides (NOx) concentration in the engine's exhaust gases using an aftertreatment intake NOx sensor and aftertreatment outlet NOx sensor. By comparing these two values, the ECM is able to determine the conversion efficiency of the SCR catalyst and dosing system.

Details for Cummins fault code: 3712

SPNFMILamp ColorDescription

52460RedAftertreatment SCR Operator Inducement - Data Valid But Above Normal Operating Range - Most Severe Level

Reason

Aftertreatment SCR Operator Inducement - Data Valid But Above Normal Operational Range - Most Severe Level. Critical SCR related fault codes have been active for an extended period of time and require immediate attention.

Effect

Immediate engine power derate. Vehicle speed will be limited to 8 km [5 miles] per hour.

Component Location

The ECM mounting location varies, depending on the engine model.

Circuit Description

The ECM continuously monitors the engine's fault code status to determine if any critical SCR related fault codes are active.

I have posted the details for both the codes

Technician: AMANDEEP MAHERU,

If possible you can drive certain miles by depressing the shutdown override switch
Because this code is not related to engine
It’s related to you emission
Which states your def system is not operation perfectly
