DEF derate fix?

I have no dog in this fight, just passing along a notice I received today, FYI.

the problem i see with the patch is, it's only available to you after the tow.

If itís only a software patch, I suspect a mobile service tech could install the patch, especially if youíre stranded.

I would spend the 2500 for the hardware patch. One time and you're safe for life.

Curious what you mean by the 2500 hardware patch. Do you mean changing the DEF tank and assembly?

Good article. It walks you through the failures and the development of the new emulator.

If you have a Cummins QuickServe account, you can check to see if your VIN is approved for it. Mine shows that I can get it if needed but I have also built a DEF Simulator to carry with me so Iím never stuck sitting on the road waiting for help.
