I had a similar experience in january heading to Tampa from ottawa. 50 miles out of town the DEF and CEL come on and ive got 16 starts. I put DEF in (only took a quart or so) and continued on my way. Shortly after the DW says 16 starts or 500 miles. Oh oh... so we drove on into Pennsylvania and stopped at a Mercedes-Benz dealer. No sprinter tech on Saturday. Over to the freightliner dealer. No tech on Saturday. Drove on and finally the DEF light went out. No limit on starts. But I had done far more than 500 miles before it reset itself. Finally in tampa a wonderful dealer took me in. Diagnosed it as a malfunction of the emmisions computer or the NOx sensors. Because I'm canadian he can't touch the computer (different federal regulations) but he changes out the two sensors and I've had no trouble since.
