Re: 2011 Mondeo - constant DPF regeneration, cannot reset DPF_SOOT_LD

Around 10 days ago my problem solved itself (I guess the magic of Christmas did it's work ;-) ). I didn't do anything special with the car (neither a static regeneration nor going on any trip). The car still showed the same symptoms described in the first post. In a desperation act I've ordered a ne...

Re: 2011 Mondeo - constant DPF regeneration, cannot reset DPF_SOOT_LD

@Kristian, I have very similar readings of FORscan pids as yourself. In my case the CATEMP1 goes up to 550-570 while driving around the city, but goes over 600 while on highway. This weekend I'll try to do a static regen and next week I plan a longer route, so we'll see if DPF_SOOT_LD gets lower aft...

Re: 2011 Mondeo - constant DPF regeneration, cannot reset DPF_SOOT_LD

Thanks, I'm aware that removing the fuse can be a temporary workaround, but I would prefer to find the root cause of the problem :-)

Re: 2011 Mondeo - constant DPF regeneration, cannot reset DPF_SOOT_LD

You can first try to reset the DTC errors and then hit the road (with FORscan monitoring the CATEMP1, CATEMP2, DPF_LOAD and DPF_SOOT_LD pids). I assume that it would try to perform the regeneration at least once in that case.

Re: 2011 Mondeo - constant DPF regeneration, cannot reset DPF_SOOT_LD

I see.

So it's a bit different than in my case. Are you able to monitor the DPF temperature when car tries to do the regeneration while driving?
It can be read in FORscan using pids: CATEMP1 and CATEMP2.

Re: 2011 Mondeo - constant DPF regeneration, cannot reset DPF_SOOT_LD

Hey Kristian, No luck so far in my case. Yesterday an error code showed up on Converse, I don't remember the number, but it was about poor quality of engine oil. Which means that the constant DPF regenerations caused diesel fuel to get mixed with engine oil. I'll have to change the oil, but I'd pref...

Re: 2011 Mondeo - constant DPF regeneration, cannot reset DPF_SOOT_LD

I've left the car at offical Ford dealer/service yesterday. All they did was resetting the DPF parameters and also updating PCM and BCM software. They claim that the DPF_LOAD pid shows how cluttered the dpf actually is, and DPF_SOOT_LD pid only shows the maximum clutter level after which the car won...

Re: 2011 Mondeo - constant DPF regeneration, cannot reset DPF_SOOT_LD

Checked the hoses which connect DPF to pressure sensor. Then seem to be ok. I wonder if I should replace the pressure sensor, but I'm not convinced since the DP_DPF pid shows 1kPa on idle and up tp 10-12 under load. Tomorrow I plan to visit Ford offical service and see if they're able to reset the D...

Re: 2011 Mondeo - constant DPF regeneration, cannot reset DPF_SOOT_LD

I've tried to reset the DPF_SOOT_LD using different software, but it's still 300%.
I'll now try to check the pressure sensor pipes. If they're clean then I guess I'll have to replace the sensor itself. But I wonder if it's actually faulty if the DP_DPF pid displays correct (I assume) values.

Re: 2011 Mondeo - constant DPF regeneration, cannot reset DPF_SOOT_LD

Hi, I haven't checked the pressure sensor pipes yet, but next week I'll try to use different software to try to reset the DPF_SOOT_LD. Will let you know about the progress. BR, Darek. I have a same situation. Dpf been cleaned, new vaporizer, new pressure sensor and new pipes been fitted and car keep...
