Diesel Particulate Filter status

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 donít know where it is in the process.

I HAVE NOT been back to the dealer or done any Forscan changes.

I did not have my phone with me to take pictures...

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 forescan.

So I am left believing a update was delivered to my truck through the onboard Cellular equipment that enables Hot Spot which I do not have enabled.

Tagging to see where this goes. This doesn't match any of my experiences yet. Interesting.

Forgot to say when I put the truck in park when I got home it said 15%.

I let it idle a while and it went down to 10%..... that seems normal.

I am definitely going to discuss with the dealer at my next oil change.

I remembered this thread but could not find it when I wanted to share my experience too

Just didnít put in the right search I guess.

Anyway you were not imaging anything....I just hope it goes back the way it was on mine too...

Sometimes the "if it aint broke don't fix it" mentality makes sense. I am going to see about disabling that WiFi/Cellular capability in my truck to prevent Ford from pushing down unwanted future changes to my truck. My truck has been running great, so I do not want Ford to push down any updates to my truck over the air. If my truck throws a code then I will be into the shop for repair.

I would think anyone who has a tune on their truck would want to do the same.

The article on the Wind River company clearly states they can do updates to the ECM via OTA technology.

Looks like module APIM 7D0-02-03 deals with the modems.

I think WACM is WiFi, HCM is hotspot modem so it would deal with Cellular,

There are also other modems that deal with live traffic, etc. just below the above (WACM HCM) I don’t know what they do yet.

I have seen a few references here and in other threads regarding Ford pushing ECM and/or PCM updates OTA (Over-The-Air via Cellular modem) w/o their knowledge.

Let me very clear here: Ford will not and Ford cannot push ECM or PCM updates to your vehicle via OTA Cellular modem or WiFi
= Your truck must be attached to a laptop in order for Ford to update ECM or PCM programming

I spoke with my dealership's Service Manager today and the only things that can be done OTA are:
1.) Sirius XM updates (done via their receiver via Satellite)
2.) Ford Sync Updates
a.) via OTA Cellular modem (if you have paid AT&T for WiFi connectivity)
b.) via a WiFi HotSpot on your cell phone
c.) via your home WiFi network (if you can park your vehicle close enough to your home/business)
My Service Manager assured me their is no technical method in place today to push ECM or PCM updates to your vehicle automatically.
= I am not saying that isn't possible/feasible, but rather Ford has restricted this functionality and is not currently doing this
= I am also not saying that they may not do this in the future, but they are definitely not doing this now

I would share this article with your ford Service Manager and see what his comment is because it clearly states Ford is a new member and the article discusses ECM OTA update capability.
