Been away for a long time and I will update the forum as to why and whats happened the last few months to cause my disappearance in due course.
For now though I have an issue with the mondeo that needs urgent attention.
Please can anyone help in locating the sensor for the dpf on a 2.2 mondeo titanium x sport 58 plate.
Car has gone into limp mode, eml is illuminated, cannot rev past 3000rpm
Done a diagnostic using forscan and it has given me fault code P2463, relating to soot accumilation
Thing is I have been carrying out a monthly forced static dpf regen, again using forscan which always works so I do not believe the fault has just pinged up out of nowhere and magically filled with soot.
Also, the code and fault was not there this morning and only occurred after taking the car to a dealers for an unrelated issue, to have a split intercooler hose replaced.
Theyve replaced the hose and fixed that fault but now all of a sudden I have a new bigger fault and they seemed pretty adamant to keep the car in, when I said no, they was very adamant to get me to book in for another day and I had to say no numerous times.
It all seems to fishy to me and I detect foul play on their part to create more work for themselves.
I limped the car home, attempted to do a forced regen using forscan but now all of a sudden it will not work and I keep getting error messages. Or it will say in the data feed that the regen was interrupted because I pressed the accelerator or the clutch or the brake or numerous other things when I did nothing of the sort.
It is as if forscan is suddenly no longer able to communicate with the dpf and I suspect the dealer has done something dodgy, possibly messed with the sensor to prevent me from trying to force a regen myself and to force me into taking it back to them.
Speedy responses would be greatly appreciated
