I have had my MacBook Pro for over 3 years now, and looking back at my Amazon Order History here are some links:
Here are the detailed instructions for adding Operator Commanded Regen (OCR) to your F150 Diesel:
1. Ensure FORScan version 2.3.16 or later ("Extended License" or 2-month trial "Extended License")
2. *DO NOT change the as built*data*(as noted in the FORScan google spreadsheet for Super Duty)
3. Use IPC module to change Auto Regen checkbox to appear in instrument*panel

4. Use PCM module to select option #3 under DPF manual regen

A. Un-checking the Auto Regen box prevents an*automatic*regen from starting when the filter gets full. You do get a warning when it gets full (I intend to capture and post a photo of this from my next regen cycle).
B. Un-checking the Auto Regen box while an automatic regen is currently running will*stop*the auto regen immediately.
C. Checking the box when the filter is full won't necessarily start an auto regen right away, but one will likely begin in the next 0-15 minutes. It simply allows the truck to go into regen if all other criteria are met, it doesn't force it into it.
D. This can't be used to force start a regen while moving.
E. This can't be used to start a regen with a filter at less than 100% Full.
F. Activating this with IDS/FORScan does also give you the option to initiate a manual regen when the filter is full, but only in park.
In a nutshell, this gives you the 'Operator Commanded Regen' (OCR) option that Ford offers on XLT and below fleet trucks, plus the ability to enable and disable the auto regen. The only real benefit here, aside from the manual regen while in park (see above video posted by ), is the ability to prevent an auto regen from starting if you're close to your*destination (point A above).
I'll post some more photos once I have more time and courage to play with the Auto Regen checkbox.
Very cool it works!I noticed I had reached 85% DPF Full status driving home today, and I have seen my truck auto regen as soon as 85% Full, so decided to uncheck the Auto Regen box in the Settings screen to prevent a regen from starting before I got home. Attached below are the photos I took illustrating what happened on the display after disabling Auto Regen.
I shut down the truck, and restarted it, and was prompted again with the message "Auto Exhaust Cleaning OFF" so this will need to get acknowledged every time starting the truck when Auto Regen is disabled.
My next trip with the truck will be longer highway miles, so will probably reenable Auto Regen before leaving home.
