You wont get a light for a regen at around 500 miles. The light only comes on if the car does not complete several normal regen attempts.vexorg said:Just over 500miles now, will keep an eye out for the light
This is what the manual says.vexorg said:
So the light only comes on when the normal regen cycle has failed on several attempts to clean the filter. This is usually due to doing a lot of stop/starting or very short journeys. It's only if you fail to act when the light comes on that you risk serious damage to the system.If
cleaning of the filter is required and previous driving conditions did not
enable automatic cleaning, it will be indicated by control indicator.<?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" />
when diesel particle filter is full. Start cleaning process as soon as
when diesel particle filter has reached the maximum filling level. Start
cleaning process immediately to avoid damage to the engine.
No amount of normal driving will clean out the DPF filter. It only gets cleaned when the car starts a regeneration cycle.vexorg said:My wife is just back from the school run saying the fan was still running when it was switched off and smells 'warm'.
Odd as we done 200+ miles on the motorway on saturday at 60-70mph. I thought that would have been enough to clean it out.
