MiTo DPF Light

Post by WhitwellMike » 22 Apr 2020, 16:33

Hi all, I had the DPF light come on (2010 Mito 1.3) and oil change light. I changed the oil and reset the light.
Now the parameters when the engine is running says DPF status Unblocked, but the light is on. Do I need to
turn this off somehow, will it go off after a drive cycle, or do I have to run the dpf regen?

Thanks for your Help

Mike

Did you do the "Oil Change" reset and is done via the engine ECU Adjustments. This is different to the Service Reset.

Try a force DPF Regen.

I did the oil change reset, Not found the service reset yet.
Is it safe / ok to do a forced DPF regen if it isn't blocked?

Thank you

Force regen will do no harm but I think you should possibly first do as you suggest a drive cycle. Before note all the DPF related parameters (there are quite a few) do the drive and afterwards read all the data again. Have a look at what has changed and if that change makes sense.

If still no luck then force regen. Do this in an open space, preferably above concrete or block/bricked drive, or in the road and not over grass or anything else that could catch fire.

With no air circulating under the car (like when driving) things are going to get very hot. An open bonnet my help a little.
