We were called out to have a look at Scarlett’s nissan qashqai that had gone into limp mode & had the dpf light illuminated on the night she was selling it!
We carried out our extensive diagnostics to find the cause of the blockage and to ensure no underlying faults. After checking everything we found that the vehicle had only ever been used for short journeys and had never completed a successful regen! It had accumulated 80grams of soot which was causing the reduced exhaust flow.
We managed to access the BCM and tell it to carry out a static regen… this reduced the soot level down to 10grams which extinguished the dpf light and come out of limp mode.
