    Hi, got 61plate C220CDI that had DPF issue.
    Replaced sensor and was OK until I put jump leads on to start a mates car.
    Since then DPF/EMU light won't clear, having tried various 2500rpm runs, incl 2X 100+ miles
    Wonder if anyone knows if icarsoft can initiate a Regen mode or do I -
    1 assume sensor blown
    2 take car to specialist
    3 take it to a "supposed" DPF cleaner?
    4 buy a new dpf - can't really afford
    5 get pushbike out

    Clean the dpf and you'll soon be back to square 1 if you don't diagnose the underlying issue , it's called the ' dpf merry-go-round' .

    Spent £300+ so far since this started 2 years ago. But last spend was to set Regen mode, and my clearing trip of 150 miles didn't work.

    It started because I used to do only 5 miles a day for a year+

    Icarsoft will not do a forced regen. Only STAR can authorise that once its checked its running the correct latest software. Likelyhood is one of the sensors on the SCR system is intermittently giving a wrong signal causing a regen issue.

    They are the bain of my existence at the moment.

    Thanks Steve. A shame MB don't provide a forced Regen button like on their Trucks ;)
    Ultimate Car Parts who sell the icarsoft stated however that you can initiate a Regen with the latest MBv2.0?

    I just bought a new icarsoft v2 and there is a option for d p f regeneration
    although I never used this option as I only got it this week.
    Only thing I am in N . Ireland or could have tried it.

    I got an update from iCarsoft in November as you can see in the pic. Its the MB iCarsoft 11 version where it mentions " " DPFRESET ) but I presume that all that does is clear the fault code, but will nor regen a DPF. So the MB STAR is the only option.

    V2 will perform a DPF regen, I have that model and it does indeed trigger a regen.
    But not on my model 2011 E250!
    Yet, I've been informed that there's an update coming though.....

    After the latest update to iCarsoft MBII v2 it'll now force a regen on the OM651 engine. So I take back what I said previously, and at last, it's not just Star that can force a regen of the DPF
