To cut a long story short I had error p2584 come one, I went to a garage. They reset the fault, removed my dpf, and I had the car remapped.  A couple of days later the eml came on with no code.  The next day it was on, they a couple of days later it came on again. Eventually after this happening around 3 times the dpf light came on the dash.  I went back to the garage and they said it shouldn't of happened.They reset all the faults including the fluid count eolys, but used different software or equipment this time.  Again iI had no faults for a couple of days, but it has re appeared exactly as it did before.

 

Can anyone help with this please?

the code relates to the eloys count so whatever they are doing they arent doing it right it can happen if they arent using the right software youll have to go back to them again and get them to sort it

Is there not a sensor on the eolys fluid tank? What I'm trying to say is the fault is being cleared, but the sensor keeps sending a message to say it's empty so the fault develops again, a never ending circle unless I top up the eolys tank or somehow fool the sensor into thinking the tank is full.

From what I know there is no sensor - it's just a "count" that the ECU keeps track of.

Well I have found a plug/socket under the rear seat (drivers side) and I have unplugged it.  Give up trying to upload it onto here, for some reason it just will not work!

 

The good news is that the eml has now gone off and has stayed off so far, but the dpf light is permanently illuminated now :(

Just about ready to give up with this now, can anyone else offer any assistance? thank you to everyone that has contributed so far!

Ok latest now is, u0118 lost communications with fuel additive control module. Surely this should have been wiped from the ecu with the dpf removal and remap?

if they had done it correctly..like mine was then- yes it should have been done with dpf removal and remap. Hence me telling you that a lot of companies dont remove them correctly :P

 

needs to go back and them do it properly..sorry

I didn't even know there was a DPF light? Thought it just illuminated the EML and threw a code?

Right I'll get back onto them tomorrow. Thanks for your help. Yes there is a dpf light it's yellow/orange, I'd take a photo but there's not much point as I can't upload any here :(

One place I spoke to when I was looking into getting the dpf deleted talked about filling the eloys tank with diesel to overcome this problem - sounds a bit fishy to me and not the "right" way to do it. They said that if the system ever called for eloys fluid injection then it would just send in diesel to be mixed with the that coming from the normal diesel tank.

 

I went to a different place to get the work done and no warning lights have come back on at all.  I was there the whole time and didn't notice that they went in under the back seats to unplug anything, but maybe I wasn't paying attention at that exact time.  I'll have a look tomorrow to see if anything ahs been disconnected.  I have never seen a dpf light on the dash (2007, Mk2), so maybe its only started on the Mk25. onwards?
