Dodge-Tech :

Welcome to JA!

It nothing too serious. Here is an explanation.

009305/P2459 - Diesel Particulate Filer: Regeneration Frequency

Possible Symptoms

  • MIL on

Possible Causes

  • Heavy loads on engine (towing)

  • Short trips in cold weather

  • Faulty Exhaust Pressure Sensors (G450/G451)

Possible Solutions

  • Change driving habits.

  • Inspect Exhaust Pressure Sensors (G450/G451) as per factory repair manual.

Special Notes

  • Depending on driving habits, soot can build up quickly in the DPF, thus requiring more frequent regenerations than normal.
