Start her up and see if DEF light comes on. You might have to be pateinet and give the system a little bit correction time. If DEF light stays on, wouldn't this be grounds for transfer pump indictment?

does the light come on from a active side or passive side sensor?
Interesting point... is there a different warning for the two tanks - active vs passive? I couldn't tell in the tech literature I've read. I know they both have level sensors - but it wasn't clear how they work.
