02.1  SPN 3720/FMI 15 - EPA07 - EPA10 - GHG14

Diesel Particulate Filter Has Reached the End of its Service Life

Replace DPF and perform the Ash Accumulator reset using DiagnosticLink® .

The DPF lamp will illuminate and code 3720/15 will log when the truck reaches the appropriate mileage interval. This fault indicates that the DPF needs to be replaced and the DPF Ash Accumulator Routine in DiagnosticLink must be completed. This routine can be found in the Actions drop-down menu and must be completed after the DPF has been replaced.

Cleaning accumulated ash from the DPF is a necessary part of vehicle maintenance and is a customer charge. The recommended service is to remove the DPF and replace with a reliabilt® Clean DPF. The reliabilt® Clean DPF has a parts warranty and the same cleaning interval as the original DPF.

NOTE: Using alternate cleaning methods may result in the cleaned DPF failing to reach the next Ash clean interval. The customer may experience damage to the Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) or DPF assemblies as a result of alternate cleaning methods.

  • Refer to section "Resetting the EPA07 Diesel Particulate Filter Ash Accumulators"
  • Refer to section "Resetting the EPA10/GHG14 Diesel Particulate Filter Ash Accumulators"

This fault is normally for a plugged DPF but if the DPF is not plugged then the sensors could be plugged with soot giving false readings. Try having the system reset with the detroit software and then try a parked regen to see if it will resolve. We can follow up as needed.

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.

The only thing is eventually it will derate your power if ignored too long and Regen will not complete.

How long it takes for it to derate
Technician: Daniel Wilson,
 replied 4 years ago

That depends on how much soot is in the DPF and regen is required. Once regen is required and if the truck cant regen due to faults, the derate process will begin. I tried accepting your call offer but there is a problem with your payment... Customer service can help you resolve that before we get on a call. Let me know
