The only possibility is to try a parked regen to see if it will successfully complete. If the faults logged wont allow regen at all unfortunately the codes need to be read and diagnosis and repairs need to be made before the system/ECM will reset itself. In some cases the software needs to be updated and reset if after repairs are made the system still wont regen and rested itself.

Please take a moment to rate as that is how the site credits my time helping on the site or let me know if you need more help. 5 star and bonuses are always greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the info.
SPN 3713/FMI 31 - EPA07
This diagnostic is typically High Idle Regeneration (HIR) aborted - Low Regeneration Temperature.
The fault indicates that the HIR was aborted due to the Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) outlet temperature not reaching the
expected target temperature to complete a HIR. If there are any other regeneration or fuel system related faults address those
first. The CEL and MIL lamp will remain ON until a fault is resolved or a successful regeneration is completed. Retain log file
if customer assistance is required.
Possible issues:
• Low Fuel Compensation Pressure
• Exhaust Leaks
• Fuel Leaks
• Sticking Hydrocarbon (HC) doser injector valve (high doser line pressure)
• DOC outlet temperature not responding

SPN 3719/FMI 15
This diagnostic condition is a silent code that logs when the DPF Regeneration Lamp is flashing in regen
Zone 3.
NOTE:
This code is informational only and used by service to help understand which dash lights illuminated
during normal service. A stationary regen is required if the fault code is active. No action is required
for an inactive fault code.

What can be done with the doc outlet temp to make it right is it a sensor that needs to be changed.

4 Mar 2015, 8:54 PM

Me

I would check the outlet sensor and harness for problems first and check the system for leaks as well as the other potential causes listed.

4 Mar 2015, 9:12 PM

Customer

Was just not reaching temp. Got it hot enough and it completed regen turned all lights off and no codes came back on. Thanks a bunch.
