Had mine activated Friday. Here are my initial observations
It updates in 5% increments and not in real time as the PIDS do through Forscan App
As Ford Doctor mentioned, it will not turn on OCR regeneration in a truck that has the 4.7" Color Instrument Display
Here is my observations from last night on my first DPF Filter Full Message:
When mine was parked and full, I could not initiate a manual regeneration. My servicing dealer may not have activated that part and I would unlikely use OCR anyway.
For the gauge accuracy, I am not so sure.
35 miles after a burn down the numbers don't match even after turning off the truck and recranking.
Note this was after I had only a 2 minute burn down due to EGT4 skyrocketing to 1450 degrees.
Even though the regeneration only lasts 2 minutes per the PIDS being displayed in the Forescan App, I still get a burn down from 3.55 g/l to around 1.1 g/l. The new Instrument Cluster gauge dropped to 85% and the PIDS thru Forscan continued to drop to around 11%.
On my truck this occurs on every other regeneration.
When this occurs , the PCM will subtract 100 miles from the distance since last regeneration value and then it will force one 100 miles later regardless of what the values are.
Then, on the next regeneration, the EGT4 will stay below 1250 and the regen will run for around 16 miles.
My diesel tech said the Ford Hotline said this was normal. When a Ford CRM Manager put an engineer on the phone with me though, he said it was not normal and that Ford would need my truck for 30 to 45 days to try to figure it out .
