Ford Focus Dpf P242f-61 reset?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

I have a Ford ford focus 2008 1.6tdci

I had the fault code p242f-61 - Ash accumulation. 

I purchased and fitted a new dpf today yet the fault code remains despite my best efforts to reset it with forscan. I even reset dpf learned values. 

Any idea how I can get the fault code to clear? 

 

Thanks in Advance, 

Sam.

This code is a pain to clear even to with Forscan.  There is a method that works for some people bit I can't remember it.  Think it may be @Tdci-Peter who mentioned it before!

@TomsFocus & @Deltamansam I think the method is to disconnect the MAF sensor, start the engine, switch it off and there will be a fault code for the MAF as well. You can then clear both codes.

I don't know if this method works with the 2008 models or not.

Thanks to both for you for the help. I'll test this method and report back. 

Thanks, 

Sam.

The method from John (tizer) is the same as the one in this reference:
