- I've gone back and re-read your original post again, and I guess I missed this, but you are saying that you have always had a % Full reading in the Diesel Particulate Filter Status section in your heads-up IPC?
Noticed change in the filter cleaning process today.
A dimly lit screen that read Diesel Particulate Filter Status..... Cleaning displayed with an OK in the lower right corner of the box. I pressed ok and box went away.
Then I selected The screen to display the Diesel Particulate Filter Status and it said cleaning.
It no longer gave the percent of fill on the screen throughout the remaining Regen process
now I don’t know where it is in the process.
I HAVE NOT been back to the dealer or done any FORscan changes.
The only thing that I have done since the last regen is to correct the displayed MPG to what I actually calculate.
This is done without FORscan.
This is interesting because AFAIK
this panel is normally not available to owners and has to be enabled by the dealer or via FORScan --
, and myself have all added this panel via FORScan.
I have had the Diesel Particulate Filter Status panel enabled for so long that I have grown accustomed to it always being there (I look at it daily), but normally there is no indication whatsoever to the owner. Without this % Full Display, you are correct = you have no idea where you are in the Regen process! I have griped about this transparency in more than one thread on these forums.
Maybe a better question is to ask your dealer where the display went, as you are saying that you have always had this display?
Could your dealer have possibly enabled the Diesel Particulate Filter Status display and it got wiped out with one of the reprogramming FSAs?
Did you purchase your truck new? If new, was it previously a dealership loaner or demo vehicle?
I'm thinking somewhat at your dealership turned it on and a service procedure then defaulted you back to the "normal" behavior.
Normally this Diesel Particulate Filter Status panel is hidden to any owner except those who have enabled it via FORScan.
