    Better start a star case with chrysler or you will be paying for a new def tank. They were on back order when I had my replaced in Sep.

    Why would you think a new def tank is required? Lines are probably just frozen up.

    I had the SAME thing happen to me two years ago (just a thaw in my garage was needed). All has been good since .

    I picked up my truck yesterday from the dealer. They said i recieved this message and Engine light from not having enough DEF. The trucks indicator gauge showed 3/4 full, and I know I put DEF in it within the last 300 miles or so. The Dealer said they topped it off, and the warning sign reset. However, my indicator still shows 3/4 full. Is there a posibiity that the indicator is deffective?

    If that is their diagnosis I would be looking for a new shop to do work, sounds like he service adviser (not tech) made the diagnosis. they are guessing

    I remember a couple of threads from last winter ,
    saying the gauge mechanism is at the top portion of the DEF tank
    the element to warm the DEF is at the bottom of the tank
    if the top freezes the gauge will say 3/4 , never moving because it is frozen
    then you still use DEF from the bottom because it is liquid , and warmed by
    the element ,.... until you run out ....
    they also said something about a reflash , so you would not get the " will
    not start in 200 miles " IF OUTSIDE TEMP is lower than XX degrees
    .
    it is not the exact description , but what I remembered about it .
    .
    Good Luck and keep us updated please.

    Lines frozen , no def being used , hence code ?

    Once thawed , code reset and truck continues to run without issue .
    Same thing happened to me.
