Apologies if this has been asked before, I tried searching and could not find an answer.

2018 4x4; 3000kms on the vehicle.

DEF gauge in the instrument cluster says about 3/4s full, filled literally to the top about 5 days ago, and the gauge hasn't reset itself..

Does it typically take that long? I put about 400kms on today, and still hasn't changed.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks.

This is not a fully qualified answer, but mine seems to reset when I fill the fuel tank.

If I fill the DEF, it doesn't register the higher level until I fuel up. Maybe it is the resetting of the trip meter, or maybe not. It could just be that it queries the DEF level when the fuel gauge goes up.
Mine is also a 2018, with just over 10k miles.

Thanks for the reply, greatly appreciated.

Maybe I will fill it up and see if that does the trick!

I’ve not been able to discern a pattern. I’ve filled it then fretted waiting for it to reset only to forget about it for a day or three and it has changed.

Mine resets when I turn the key on. Fill it with the key off, turn the key on and check. 2017 3.0.
