Thanks for all the comments. I finally got it in at a dealer (about 25 miles away). They ran every diagnostic test known to modern man and everything was good. Apparently, just one of those electronic things that pop up occasionally. They reset it and everything seems to be working fine. They said the 21 models have an actual readout that tells you how much fluid you have in the tank. No more guesswork. Again, thanks for all your comments.


Thats what happened with my Ford... My 2020 has a full Blown DEF gauge ! LOVE IT, no more idiot light

I have never had any range anxiety with how the GM's do their DEF quantity. You get a full 600 mile notification that you will be needing DEF soon message.

Some people need to relax a little.

I do not get a 600 mile notification. I may get a 180 mile notification I may not? I may get a 90 Mile notification I may not.
Notifications are for cell phones.
I don't need notifications I need a gauge.

My 2020 GMC has a display to tell me how much DEF I have. Works like the fuel display.

Bingo unfortunately GM did not think a gauge was important until 2020.!

My biggest gripe with the whole DEF set up is there is no DEF gauge.
Why can't we have a gauge and know our DEF level vs. relying on a glorified idiot light?


The Ram diesel trucks have a DEF gauge.
