Can you describe what "Light came on" in more detail? Did you manage to capture a photo of it?

Have you done any of the FORScan mod's to allow for DPF % Full or OCR to be displayed in the information system?

It is the same infotainment message that the super duty owners get, I am wondering if it is a system update from ford pass app or the wifi stuff in the truck. I do not have any forscan mods so this was interesting should have taken a pic of it but I did not lol.

@jamanrr see if you can get a photo of it the next time it pops up.

Its funny you should mention a possible update, I jumped in my truck yesterday (7pm MST) to go grab some groceries and it felt like the truck had been re-tuned ( more low end grunt, faster throttle, more aggressive shifting ) so much so that I had to check if it was in sport mode and it was not.. i just hit 1300km's and thought maybe the truck switched to a more aggressive tune after some pre defined break-in period or something, or that it was just in my head..

I do have automatic updates applied.

I doubt i am just imagining it as i am very in-touch with how my vehicles are behaving mechanically.

weird..

Ford does use this technology.

I am 99% sure Ford does not push ECM updates via the air. It is done thru a PC at a dealer.

I am experiencing the same thing with my truck as @Jgleadle which started in my truck about a week ago. I hate the new tune that seems to have been delivered over the air--well, love-hate. Love the immediate throttle response and feels like what Sport Mode felt like before. Hate the fact that I am now 50% DPF Full in 50 miles instead of like 125 miles. Every time I start up and move my truck it is an automatic +5% DPF Full gain.

I started trying to remember putting it into ECO Mode every time I start the truck and then the throttle behaves like it used to, and I got used to needing to wait a little longer for traffic to clear before entering into traffic, and for those times I couldn't wait, well then Sport Mode to the rescue.

I have been doing a lot of errands with my truck over the past week, and those errands have me in regen waaaaaay toooo often! It could also be that I ran out of The Fuel Ox 2-3 tanks ago. I know there is another thread on that where people claim it didn't do anything for them. Well, The Fuel Ox either did great things for my regen intervals or it is this new over the air tune that is killing me now (along with the unusual amount of shorter trip errands that I would normally do in the CX-5 but we have had both vehicles quite active as of late).

The attached FORScan screenshots illustrate the difference...

Can you post a pic of your PCM strategy in the Forscan log? Maybe a before and after? I really don’t think they update the PCM over the air.
