I own a Holden Captiva and have had multiple DPF warning

Customer Question

Hi Pearl. I own a Holden Captiva and have had multiple DPF warning codes that have come up
JA: Just to clarify, what's the exact code? And have you tried to reset it?
Customer: yes the mechanic has reset it, he said the code stated that the DPF could not get to the required termperature to conduct the burn of the particles
JA: What year is your Holden Captiva?
Customer: this only occurs when I am up at the snow
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: 2009
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: it doesn't occur when I am in my home town (bit warmer than the snow)

Hi Matthew,

Has a Holden Tech looked at your car, or just a normal garage mechanic?

The Holden TECH2 scan tool or laptop equivalent shows more data than most other tools.

My bet is you have a faulty EGT sensor, exhaust gas temperature.

I have seen this concern many times.
