Is there a light on dash that lights up when the regen is happening? Or is there something that needs to be enabled in Forscan? and will the dealer wanna do it?

Not from the factory, but I know it can be turned on using Forscan. It's on my list of things to do. There's threads here and in f150forum.com that show how to do it.

There is no light, and as far as I am aware, there's not way to do this using forscan either. To know you have to activate the DPF % and watch it. Regen will start as soon as it hits 100%. You can turn on a manual regen toggle in forscan as well, where you can turn off auto regen if you're getting close to home with say a 95% full dpf, and don't want a regen to start. Ford decided that on these newer diesels, it was best that no one knows when it's doing a regen, for some reason.

Yes, using FORScan you can add a field that tells you DPF filter percentage full, and you can add a control to turn off automatic regeneration. But you can’t initiate regeneration when you like, you can only wait until it hits 100% then go drive for about 15 miles.

Most of my driving is about 4 miles to work and another 4 miles to home. it always seemed it was in and out of regen. I did the forscan and now can deactivate it. I am getting about 200 miles after a full regen before it does it again, I held off the last time until I go a message that the filter was saturated. Other than doing a manual regen is there anyway to get more mileage before a regen ( besides doing hwy driving) I am back driving my 2002 ford F150 to commute and leaving the 3.0 in the driveway for trips
