Many have had issues with the tank and associated hardware it comes with. Heater and level sensors and such. Should replace the whole thing under warranty with a new unit. My car was brand new and has already had the tank and hardware replaced under warranty. Threw a code. You should have it scanned with VCDS and if there is a code showing it should be replaced completely.

2015 Q7, bought new Feb 2019. Post fix problems required two visits to dealers in early days, no issues throughout summer and next 18k. Once it got cold, new problems surfaced, and from what I am told, result of work done during "fix" (now THERE's an oxymoron!!!) they think disturbed a harness under the center console/shifter that is somehow not allowing the park lock to release when colder than -25C or so, thus they are replacing the entire shift quadrant (pretty sure it only needs the right lubricant in the pivot point of the release lever driven by the N110 solenoid).
4L='15 Q7 TDI, B7='15TDI(buy back), B6='09 wagon gasser, A4=2003 TDI Variant, A3=Golf CL, A2=2x1.6 Jetta TDs, Golf Syncro Country, A1=Scirocco Mk1 & 16v, Audi 5000TD, 2014 I, Porsche 924/M471 and a bunch of diesel trucks.

Wasn't even a few days before the engine light came back on, and now I have 50 km to no start. Not terribly happy, but hopefully whatever the problem is, it's covered by the VW warranty.
I've had that issue with our T'reg TDI. Did you ever figure out why it isn't recognizing the AdBlue refill? It's bunk that it's not VW blessed piss. Mine went into lockout to start as I was on the way to the airport and had to fly out. It was towed to a VW dlr in Vegas who got the code cleared and it started, but they had no idea why it didn't recognize refilling the urea tank. TIA for any hints.
