Hi folks,
Im new to this site and i've browsed through quite a few of the posts on dpf issues. My dpf wont regenerate, If I try a forced regeneration I can get it to run but nothing happens and the soot levels actually increase. Not sure if anyone has any ideas what the issue is. Ive done a full scan and I have a lot of faults that I didnt know about until this dpf issue raised its head. Not sure where to start, my local mechanic suggests removing the dpf altogether but if there was a more obvious fix id prefer that. Any help much appreciated.

Code:
Removed.  Data from a clone/pirate copy of VCDS is not acceptable in Ross-Tech's forum.

Many of the faults are intermittent meaning they were there but were not present at the time the test was run. I suggest clearing the faults and see what returns.

Did you have a weak battery recently? Many of the faults appear to have been triggered by low voltage.

As to the DPF, I am no help to you there. I don't know diesels very well - except on the nice old lady you see in my avatar. She and I are getting acquainted but she has not DPF...

The ECU will not initiate regen above 40G, it is too blocked, hence "Excessive Soot Accumulation"

Thanks Bruce, had battery problems recently alright. That's a different set of problems as I think something may be draining it. It's a brand new battery but will drain after a few days if left.

Thanks for the reply. I was having the problem with it not regenerating before it went over 40g. My problems are probably worse now that it has gone over the 40

@kerrypassat I believe you are using an illegal copy of our product and no further help will be given here until you acquire a real system. They are available on our web site or from our listed distributors. The forum moderator will be along to confirm my suspicion.
