Hello, my name is ***** ***** thank you for using just answer. Call your local dealer and give them your vin number. Have them check to see if there is an extended warranty on that part and for that fault code. They put an extended warranty on the reductive agent heater assembly, 10 years and 120k miles on some of the vehicles. Its worth a shot, if its covered the job is free. Hope this helps, thank you.
