Which MATLAB release are you using?

What shows up for
which -all pdepe
I have tried the example in R2016b, and I tried your code (along with a copy of pdex4bc renamed pdex5bc) in R2016b, and I do not get any problem about too many input arguments for pdepe. I do get the error that Cris mentioned: with that boundary condition, your sol comes out 1 x 41 and you cannot surf() a vector.
You should post the pdex5bc that you are using.

The pdex4 variable sol is a 9x13x2, or length(t) x length(x) x 2. The provided code (pdex5?) is 1x41x2. I don't understand your equations, but it looks like your code can't get past the t=0 step.
Can you double check that there is a solution at t=0?
It's worth verifying that your equations have been correctly entered as well.
