In Topic: Dpf On 1.6 Tdci

Sadly I haven't got a Forscan, I don't have a laptop to use so needed an independant device. I got a Maxiscan MS309.

With it looking like I'd need a new dpf, and I know a garage that will fit parts for me rather than them buying, if I search on eBay for something like 'Ford Focus 1.6 TCDI DPF' would I find exactly what I am looking for - or are there many different versions and I'd need to find a specific part number for my car?

Sadly limp mode is still there. After a drive I checked the scanner again and the secondary P242F code was back with the engine management light.
I am hoping its full of something other than ash, just it doesn't know the difference.

How do you get it to do an active regen, rather than passive?

I finally managed to get a hold of a scanner, eBay seller failed to post it, so got a full refund and he delivered anyway.

5 codes
P242F - Diesel Particulate Filter Restriction Ash Accumulation

P0500 - Vehicle Speed Sensor A

P1934 - Manufacturer Control

U0073 - Control Module Communication Bus Off

P242F - Diesel Particulate Filter Restriction Ash Accumulation (again)


I cleared the codes and now only the one P242F shows. I haven't driven it yet but the engine management light isn't lit up anymore so it may be out of limp mode, although can't be certain yet. I plan to take it for a drive out later tonight when the road is clearer to see if I can get it to regen if possible.
