    Hi all,
    After a bit of advice please.
    I have a 2015 ultra which has 30k miles on it.
    The car was bought used from Audi as approved used in Nov 17 so its 1 month out of warranty.

    Came to the car yesterday an upon starting it came up with the message Adblue system fault, no restart in 650 miles.

    I know there is plenty of adblue in as it was only filled (by Audi) in August and Iíve since topped it right up to see if that cleared the fault, and run it for 30 or so miles to see if it would recalibrate and clear the error message - no joy.

    It has been on a diagnostic at an independent garage as Audi couldnít fit me in straight away but there are no fault codes showing at all? The garage suggested the float may be stuck in the tank? Does anyone have any experience of this? Can it be fixed or is it a new tank?
    I presume the diagnostic would show up if it was the pump or nox sensor, Iím a bit stuck how to proceed as new tanks are very expensive - £500+

    Should I be ringing Audi and trying to get them to cover it as itís only just out of warranty? Anyone had any success with this?

    Any advice greatly appreciated
    Many thanks

    Neil

    I would try and get them to cover it. Whatís the worse can happen they say no.
    Adblue can easily crystallise, if you spilt any on your drive you see it turns white quite quickly. Other thing is it could be a bit of frost stopping the float from going up.
    It should have given you the 1000 or 1500 miles warning before the 650. Unfortunately it didnít let you start if it thinks it zero.
    Suppose only good thing is if itís full and the float is stuck half way itís never gonna go down far enough to show zero to stop you from starting. Itís an optimistic view
    Try filling some more in it and see what happens. Could be a leak somewhere

    If you have a search in the C7 section you'll see i had the same warning a couple of months ago that turned out to be the pump that failed. I had a look at the old pump that came out and its a complicated bit of kit. The garage said the part was approx £600 but I didn't pay a penny as I'd only had the car a couple of months.
    If its not throwing up a fault code it may just need a recalibration, hopefully its just that.

    Update:
    So after around 100 miles driving the car over the weekend (after the adblue tank was brimmed) I come to it this morning and no warning lights, no message and it seems the problem has cleared itself.
    Quick call to the Indy garage to let them know and guy said heíd been thinking about it over the weekend and can only put it down to the float being stuck or the adblue crystallising around the float that caused the problem. Once it was filled up the float freed up and the system needed a few miles to recalibrate.
    Iím taking this one as a win!
    Just wanted to update so anyone else facing the same problem can give this a try before going to a dealer. You just need to be brave to drive it for 100 or so miles with the message saying no restart if it gets to zero.

    Cheers for the replyís, fingers crossed itís fixed!
