The engine speed increases. The "DPF-regeneration" symbol disappears from the multifunctional display of the dash-board and the “DPF REGENERARTION ACTIVE” message appears you should have the regen switch on the dash.Observe the vehicle and its immediate surroundings during regeneration. The regeneration process takes 20 to 40minutes. if that way does not work than follow this one

Engine at idle----
