#458344 Side Lights, Any Good Upgrade Bulbs Around?

Posted by DJ_Andy_M on 24 February 2015 - 10:40 PM

shame the sidelights don't go off when you put full lights on..




That's called the law. They're actually called marker lights and they are to mark the outline of the car (important if a headlamp bulb fails). Granted I prefer the US way of using marker lights, i.e the indicators with dual filament bulbs. Much clearer marking!

#295485 Correct Method For Dpf Regen..

I've been told mine is a non-coated one but if you have a coated one, surely I should? When was your car made? Mine was April 2008. We're both MK2.5's i'm assuming.


Having a look about on Google. Sounds like a sensor problem








P2002 - Diesel Particulate Filter Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 1) 
Description: The powertrain control module (PCM) monitors the efficiency of the diesel particulate filter for a concern. The efficiency of the filter is determined by the amount of restriction in the filter for a certain exhaust flow rate. The diesel particulate filter is preconditioned for 5,000 km (3,107 miles) before the PCM begins to monitor the level of restriction. The test fails when the measured level of restriction is less than the expected level calculated by the PCM. Possible Causes:
  • Dirty air cleaner element
  • Recent manual or thorough diesel particulate filter regeneration
  • Aftermarket accessories and performance modifications
  • Modified tailpipe
  • Exhaust leaks before or near the diesel particulate filter pressure sensor
  • Leaks in the diesel particulate filter pressure sensor connecting hose
  • Damaged diesel particulate filter
Diagnostic Aids: Check for leaks in the exhaust system. Check for aftermarket exhaust accessories and performance modifications that decrease the exhaust restriction. If a new diesel particulate filter was recently installed, verify the diesel particulate filter parameter reset procedure was carried out.

The number plate light on my 2008 MK2.5 focus wasn't a 501 capless, it was a festoon bulb.
