Check engine light.....

Wife usually drives the truck and when she was coming home from work yesterday the check engine light came on. My first thought was for DEF fluid (don't really know why I thought that) so I filled it up. It was below half but the empty or fill DEF fluid light was not on. Only other thing I have noticed was the remote start doesn't work. Horn just beeps when you try to start it remotely.

I drove it on a 100 mile round trip last night before dropping it off at the dealer. It ran fine with no other issues except what I mentioned above. I haven't heard from the dealer yet. Any ideas what they might find? I only have 3,165 miles on it, oil not changed yet. Drive it normal, all stock and have only towed about 300 miles with it so far.

Thoughts??

I am not saying that this is what it is, but when my truck did exactly what you are saying the DEF pump went out. Truck still ran great, just wasn't getting DEF in the exhaust.

I would assume he is under warranty.

Fixed under warranty. They reprogrammed the computer with updated software to fix the problem. Not really sure why or how that has anything to do with it but oh well. As long as it doesn't become a problem. For now all is well. If it happens again I will let ya'll know.
