how to?

Post by swalker » 06 Mar 2017, 13:16

is there no "go" button because the pre-conditions are not satisfied?

the car was up to temp and had over half a tank of fuel.

i was sitting waiting on the wife outside a shop and the burning smell kicked in, i thought to myself i bet that is the DPF regen thing.
The wife came out and i took off, well not really as the car had kicked into limp home...

i have googled and searched on how to start a regen and there seems to be conflicting stories , does any one have fact or service bulletin?

Thanks again
Stewart
