CONDUCCIÓN EN DISTANCIAS CORTAS O EN CLIMAS FRÍOS

If the vehicle is frequently driven short distances or in cold weather conditions, then the engine may not reach normal operating temperature. This means that regeneration of the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) does not take place and the filter is not efficiently cleaned. When the filter reaches a condition when a filter regeneration is appropriate and the current drive style is not appropriate, a warning triangle on the Instrument panel illuminates and the message DPF Full. See manual is displayed in the Message centre. This is not indicating a fault condition with the vehicle and no dealership support should be required. Start regeneration of the filter by driving the vehicle, preferably on a main road or motorway. The vehicle should then be driven for approximately 20 minutes or more.

When regeneration is complete, the warning text is cleared automatically.

NOTES

A small increase in fuel consumption may be noticed temporarily during regeneration.
