Maybe he was hoping you had a tuner, Etc on it. This one meant that the messages were erratic and we could get stranded on some lonely stretch of road in western Nebraska. Given this, there is probably a way to turn the adblue system off with the correct programming. Light stays off for a while but then it comes back. Anyone else been having issues with the Exhaust system all inclusive on the Duramax? We had a pretty cold winter here in North Texas this year. I believe the emissions equipment warranty was originally 50k miles, but since the tank heaters were crapping out on such a regular basis, and it became an expected failure, they increased the warranty to 75k on those components.
Sure enough, on Tuesday, the dealer called and we set up an appointment for this morning. In my line of work, some shops charge what they call. Truck has 132k so it's passed the 120k extended. I even checked the ground on the rear of the wheel well. That would kill the warranty and go into customer pay. He told me what all he has replaced around 700.
Credit to user here: Jullian is not my name. Anyone else been having issues with the Exhaust system all inclusive on the Duramax? I haven't noticed whether the circuit gets energized every now and then or just when the outside temperature is below freezing, but the controller can tell whether the heaters are in place or not, and it then communicates that to the computer. I see ya still pissed since ya got called out on the free parts carpet with your boss Diesel Place Nick , how did he work out for ya. Good for Ford nice to see they did one thing right. Then I wired in a 100W variable resistor in it's place.
Just took the truck in for the check engine light. I set the resistor for 3 ohms. Truck has 73K, bone stock. I was out of luck on that since I did it myself. In my line of work, some shops charge what they call. I told him to bring it in and he said the labor rate was to high. I'm just busting your chops ,I have nuttin better to do! Water took it off easily though.
I no longer work at a dealer. You can work this out. I've got a Micro Can from Ross-Tech. Jim, The temperature sensor on the reductant tank was malfunctioning. I don't beleive they know the issue either. How did it work out? Seems like most automobile manufacturers care less about customer satisfaction once you purchase something.
Just an assumption is all I'm saying. I have had no ill-effects but am worried now that I can't trust the Check Engine light system if the light stays on all the time. One of the many questions that are asked when they call. Neither issues have been identified or resolved by the dealer. I guess maybe some malfunctions disable that feature, because it worked this morning. I had an oil pressure sensor go bad and contacted the dealer about it to see if it was covered. They told me that a malfunctioning temp sensor can confuse the Electronic Control Module, resulting in all kinds of problems.
The function of the ad blue is to regenerate a catalytic converter. Dealer loaned me a brand new Colorado pickup, and they washed, vacuumed my truck, and reset all the tire pressures for this colder weather. Diesel exhaust fluid begins to freeze at 12 degree fahrenheit. Time to schedule an appt. Saw a lot with heater and tank replacement. If it was me I guess I would buy an eletric blanket and wrap it, but I don't think they make a 12v elect blanket Dealer is telling us that we arent alone and there is no fix yet. They covered it under the emissions warranty, but told me that they really were supposed to bill me.
My main fear is in the dead of winter and the urea freezes and can't be heated. It should be turning on and off by temp of the def in the tank. He was out in left field for warranty. I'll see you around cupcake ready to sling some poop your way you big Phoney! Anybody have any info on this heating system? He was out in left field for warranty. We have a 2014 Chevy Cruze. I'm willing to bet that a much smaller resistor would work, but if the temperature dropped to the point where the heater was supposed to do it's job, you would run the chance of burning up your resistor and maybe the heater controller.
You probably don't shut the Fords off for fear they wont restart. I guess maybe some malfunctions disable that feature, because it worked this morning. We just keep towing them back. I've checked the hardware around the ad blue tank, and all the wiring. I'm willing to bet that a much smaller resistor would work, but if the temperature dropped to the point where the heater was supposed to do it's job, you would run the chance of burning up your resistor and maybe the heater controller. Engine light came on and code is for the crap def heater.
When are you going to start posting up pictures of Odometers? This package eliminates the Adblue. You are correct on the wording to get paid. This is done to speed thawing. Truck has 73K, bone stock. I tried disconnecting both batteries thinking it isn't sensing the def tank being full? Maybe he could have saved some money but who cares. I figured since it was a bit under 800 miles to Breckenridge, I'd get it taken care of there. And the next day the Check Engine light reappeared.
