Manual regen option

I thought I had it enabled at the dealership and I have the particulate filter screen percentage on the dash which is now at 95% but I have no manual regen option. From what I read it takes both Forscan and the dealership to enable manual regen. I have Forscan and thought I enabled the option but obviously I didn't unless it's somewhere I haven't found on the display. Now my filter is at 95% and I don't know if they made it manual only or what. I'm worried that the truck will get to 100%, go into limp mode and explode in a shower of Green Peace labeled environmentally friendly low carbon confetti. What am I missing here?

manual re gen

I think you have to wait for it to be at 100% to manually do it.

I thought you could regen any time.

That is 100% correct, you have to wait till your DPF is 100% full.

Why not let it so it's thing automatically? We have equipment at work with all that stuff and were told not to start a manual regen unless it won't do it automatically.

Just because the truck says you are at 100% does not mean you will go into limp mode. The real fully plugged filter is 300% which you will never see in your info screen. The reason ford does not enable the option to do an operator commanded regen below 100% is to protect the owners/operators from themselves. Lots of people that do not understand the emissions systems so they would have the mentality of wanting to do a regen at 50% before they went on their road trip. That kind of mentality would be disastrous to for the longevity of the filter.

The operator commanded regen is designed for people like myself when I am up north working in the winters. I spend weeks in remote areas where I do not have the ability to drive over 50km/hr (30mph). Since I have no way to meet parameters for an active regen to start, ford gave us the option to start one manually. I’d guess that 98% of people do not require the ability to do an OCR. Don’t over think your system. Once I had a regen kick in while the truck was running for about 10min in the morning in -35C weather. Scared the hell out of me because of all the white “smoke” coming out of the exhaust. There are failsafes built in to protect you.

Once it the dpf hits 100% you will be asked do you want to do a regen it will then walk you through it. Your truck will sound like a jet engine when it starts! Don't be worried l, rpms will rev to 2k. Lasts 20-25 minutes

That's why I wanted the manual regen option so I could do it when I'm going somewhere not sitting in the driveway. I can't wait to rip this crap out. But I will.
