Hi my name is***** will be glad to help.

The ECM has not detected the size of the DPF. The ECM is using the default size for the DPF. The power rating of the engine determines the default size. Engine power is derated. One of the following diagnostic codes is present:

3936-2 The signal indicates that the size of the DPF is not correct for the engine's power rating.
3936-3 The signal from the sensor group is above the acceptable limit.
3936-4 The signal from the sensor group is below the acceptable limit.
Once the system is powered via the keyswitch a delay of approximately 15 seconds will occur before the code appears.
