Hi there ! Sorry to hear you are having trouble! My name is ***** ***** I would like to try and help if I can ! If the soot lamp(regen lamp) is on , then once the engine is at operating temperature, you should be able to perform a parked regeneration . Simply leave unit with park brakes on, do not touch any pedals , and press the parked regeneration switch for 1 second . The engine should begin to ramp up in RPM . This process can take over an hour to complete and then you will be good to go again and the light should be out .

Ecm reads everything is good no regen needed all parameters good but light is still on on the dash

Parked regen has been performed by two dealers goes thru cycle but never completed both mechanic's say nothing wrong with engine however light persists
Expert:  Andy replied 1 year ago.
OK so no engine codes at all in memory? And when they do the regen, are they letting it go through the entire cycle ? A code would be generated at the end of a regen cycle if something came up during the cycle . They must not cancel out of it and let it continue to the end .

Just took it to mhc and there tech said the dpf was full of ash causing the light to stay on however still no ecm codes
Expert:  Andy replied 1 year ago.
That could possibly be the cause depending on how old the ecm calibration is because the newer calibrations actually include a code now for dpf being full of ash and needing a cleaning .
He may be right especially if dpf has not been removed or touched in a good 300000 km or so .
Expert:  Andy replied 1 year ago.
Did that resolve your issue ? Hopefully problem is solved ? He would also have to do an aftertreatment reset in the programming to reset the ash load in the ECM .
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
They said ash load was full dpf ia going to be cleaned next week but dash light stays on
Expert:  Andy replied 1 year ago.
Yeah dash light stays on because dpf is full and dpf pressure sensor is detecting a pressure differential accross the filter because it is full of ash so yes, the light will stay on until it sees less pressure differential accross the dpf . They will also need to do an aftertreatment maintenance reset under advanced ecm data in INSITE .

In the shop currently dunno the status if the regen light was turned off but dpf filter was full of ash
Expert:  Andy replied 1 year ago.
They will need to do an after treatment reset to clear the history.
