Some 2011-2014 Ford F-Super Duty trucks equipped with a 6.7L diesel engine that are primarily used in a stationary or off-highway use may exhibit frequent exhaust regeneration attempts. Drive To Clean messages and/or the wrench light on may appear, with DTC P2463 for a restricted diesel particulate filter (DPF).
The unique operational mode may not easily allow for a normal exhaust regeneration and may benefit from OCR (operator commanded regeneration) capability so that the vehicle can perform regeneration in a stationary setting.
Reprogramming the instrument cluster (IC) and PCM to enable this feature is not covered under warranty and is only available on vehicles equipped with a standard level instrument cluster.
1. Check the vehicle build date. If built before 11/5/2010, proceed to Step 2. If built after that date, proceed to Step 4.
2. Reprogram the IC to the latest calibration using IDS release 71.03 or higher.
3. Reprogram the PCM and TCM to the latest calibration using IDS release 71.03 or higher.
4. Enable OCR by using IDS and the following procedure:
a. Select Module Programming
b. Select Programmable Parameters
c. Select Personality
d. Select Forced Regeneration Request
e. Enable and follow the IDS screen prompts to complete programming.
