Came across this thread where a procedure is noted to force a regen clean of the exhaust filter dpt on very similar / same engine. Wonder if anyone knows the process for Promaster or has tried this?

https://ivecoforums.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=8690&p=34335&hilit=diesel+exhaust+filter#p34335


Reset the engine oil change:

Switch the ignition on, wait a few seconds until the cluster do the check, then press the accelerator pedal and start the timer, after 15 seconds start to press brake pedal 10 times, without releasing the throttle pedal, next I switch the ignition off, then release the accelerator pedal.
After 30-40 seconds start the engine and the warning light must be off!

Regeneration on demand:

Stop the vehicle on flat ground, away from traffic and pedestrians. Be sure not to be flammable material under and around the vehicle.
1. Set the gear in neutral and apply the parking brake.
2. Switch off the engine, then switch the ignition to MAR-I
3. Press the brake pedal and the accelerator pedal at the same time, and wait for the DPF warning light to blink, and the cluster to display the message "Cleaning DPF start the engine and keep the vehicle stationary".
4. Release the pedals.
5. Start the engine without pressing any pedal (throttle, brake, or clutch). The DPF warning light will start flashing. If the engine fails to start, repeat the procedure from the beginning.
Reg on demand could stop automatically if there are system failures as sensors or else.
Regeneration is complete when the DPF warning light is no longer flashing:
- if it goes out, it means that the procedure has been successfully completed;
- If the warning light remains lit, it means that the procedure has not been successfully completed and must be repeated by eliminating the causes that have caused it to stop.
After the regeneration is complete, reset the oil once more.

That is not our procedure for resetting the oil change warning. It might work but this is easier:
Change Engine Oil Indicator System
Change Engine Oil
Your vehicle is equipped with an engine oil change indi- cator system. The “Change Engine Oil” message will display in the EVIC display. The engine oil change indica-
tor system is duty cycle based, which means the engine oil 4 change interval may fluctuate, dependent upon your per- sonal driving style.
Unless reset, this message will continue to display each time you turn the ignition switch to the ON/RUN position. To turn off the message temporarily, push and release the MODE button. To reset the oil change indi- cator system (after performing the scheduled mainte- nance), refer to the following procedure.
1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position (do not start the engine).
2. Fully push the accelerator pedal slowly, three times, within 10 seconds.
3. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF/LOCK position.
NOTE: If the indicator message illuminates when you start the vehicle, the oil change indicator system did not reset. If necessary, repeat this procedure.

I have never seen any notice of particulate filter needing regen, the manual says:
EVIC — Displays
Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) Messages
• “DPF cleaning: safely keep the vehicle moving” mes- sage on the EVIC + Engine emission filter lamp lighted solid indicates that the exhaust particulate filter load- ing is above the specified range and a regeneration is required.
• Safely Drive at Highway Speeds to Remedy (the procedure lasts roughly 15 minutes at speed of about 40 mph (60 km/h) and with engine speed above approximately 2000 rpm).
• When the exaust filter is overloaded the MIL lamp will turn on and the “Service engine” message will display in the EVIC, ETC lamp blinks and the PCM limits the engine power to limit the likelihood of permanent damage to the after-treatment system. To correct this condition it will be necessary to have your vehicle serviced by an authorized dealer.

As for intervention of the regen:
Intervention Regeneration Strategy — Message Process Flow
This engine meets all required diesel engine emissions standards. To achieve these emissions standards, your vehicle is equipped with a state-of-the-art engine and exhaust system. These systems are seamlessly integrated into your vehicle and managed by the Powertrain Con- trol Module (PCM). The PCM manages engine combus- tion to allow the exhaust system’s catalyst to trap and burn Particulate Matter (PM) pollutants, with no input or interaction on your part.
Additionally, your vehicle has the ability to alert you to additional maintenance required on your vehicle or en- gine.
Refer to “Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)” in “Understanding Your Instrument Panel” for further information.

Someone might try the procedure and let us dieselers know???

Know this is an old thread.. but you can force a regeneration. Been having all sorts of DPF regen issues. If you have the AlfaOBD app and a bluetooth dongle you can connect to the engine and tell the engine to force a regen. Seems to have cleared up the issues for now. 🤞🤞Just FYI if anyone is still rocking a diesel and feel as a forced regen would benefit them.

Greenlobster. Can you tell me how to get the AlfaOBD app and the bluetooth dongle? Mine is stuck in Filter Full mode and dealer states they cant get it to regen with their tool. But they are more than happy to charge me $7000 for a new DPF, smh. Thanks
