Regen

Mbe 900 in a 2008 c2 no regen switch
How do you do a regen without spending big bucks
As the bus is asking for one

Most DPF buses will do an active or driving regen when at operating temperature and while running at highway speeds. Or there's usually a switch somewhere for a parked regen. Once the DPF is significantly plugged then the driving one won't go and you're forced to do a parked regen. My 2008 IC FE300 had a switch in the drivers area for it. I recall some Gillig low-floor buses I drove in college the switch was in the engine compartment.

I havent worked on a mercedes.. it may be something thats in a menu on the LCD odometer screen if you have one.. I have seen this to be the case on some of the CAT engines in freightliner box trucks...

Try this link and post:

The author mentions software, but it also appears there may be a procedure for initiating via ignition switch combo.

Donít have an MBE, but maybe this will help!

Good luck!
