Mine is blanked and the eml is on but i just leave it on! I check the codes every week to make sure that there is no other codes that have come up but other than that, i just leave it on.

You can reset it, but it will come back on again after about 100 miles!

Obviously it will need turning off for mot!

I would just blank it off, makes it a totally different car!

I asked a re-mapper about disabling the EGR while doing the remap but he said he would only do that if the DPF was removed or "gutted" as not doing that would "kill" the DPF.

How often does the dpf need regenerating? Like how many 1000miles in between regens?

 

I have been doing short trips as of late and dont think the DPF has ever performed a regen of its own accord

 

I do however have two modified elm cables and forscan on my laptop so I can perform a static regen as and when needed

 

 

I'm still annoyed that I can't blank my egr on my 58 plate TXS as I've been told that it will throw up the EML

 

Also elmconfig seems a bit pointless on the mk4 mondeo, so far all I have managed to do is enable autolocking at speed

 

I want to enable the shift up arrow and disable the seat belt reminder, but even after selecting both options on elmconfig neither actually take any effect.

 

Sounds like you might not be saving your config correctly?

 

When you make changes, you have to commit the change to the module that you are updating and another module. The names of which escape me just now but as an example. When I retrofitted the NX Sat Nav unit, I had to use ELMConfig to enable the navigation on my Convers+ display. I had to update the BCM and the IPC modules. I believe it's done this way so there is a backup should one of them go wrong.

Hi,

Thanks for the above. Unfortunately I drive short journeys to work and back but will always get on the dual carriageway every week to get the dpf flowing. Would that help?

And what is egrv and should I be worried?

If you buy an ODBII cable with a switch which allows it to swap between high and low speed buses, you can change quite a few settings with the ELMConfig software. Obviously some of these will rely on hardware being present in the car.

 

The Ford recommendation for the timing belt is 10 years or 125,000 miles. The general consensus seems to be to get it done before that.

I always thought that was the light sensor for the lights and a temperature sensor for the air con. Where do those live then?
