did you just pull over or lose power because, that looks like hot exhaust light, if engine didn't lose power run it, they come on on semis after long hill and go off when cool

Maybe what I learned at Camp Freightliner will help. I wish I could have gotten this to you earlier. See the attachment. Instead of a switch, there is a connector down at the bottom of the steering column, that acts as the switch.

Hope this helps

Whoops, FR Forum is keeping me from attaching the file. Look for the connector and disconnect it. I will send the file later.

You should be able to drive at highway speed. After an hour or so the regen will be complete. Did you lose power?

There are four stages of DPF warnings, namely:

1. DPF Lamp ON, manual states 2-6 hours of driving, but Freightliner instructor say 1:15 hrs. driving. Action: Parked Regeneration.

2. DPF Lamp Flashing; manual states 1-2 hrs driving. Action: Parked Regeneration

3. DPF Lamp Flashing and Check Engine Light; manual states regeneration immediately.

4. DPF Lamp Flashing, Check Engine Light on and Red Stop Engine Light On. Manual states "Stop Engine Immediately and take to authorized Cummins repair location". At this point, the after treatment system and engine could be damaged,.

You do not ever want to get to a Red Stop Engine Light!

Ok I got it, so when does this light typically come on? I mean how often does it require a regen?

Depends on engine exhaust temps. The faster you drive with load the hotter the exhaust system runs. If predominantly slow local roads the more regen cycles are required.

I drive by RPM's not speed. 55-60 is to slow on RPM'S I drive at about 1800-2100 use the transmission for better mpg. Works for me.
