6.4L in Constant Regen!!

Hi guys, I have an 08 6.4L that is is constant regeneration mode. Before I take it to the dealership that is 50 miles away I wondered if there is a way to reset the computer? You know like turn the ignition 5 times...something like that. My duramax was like that. Thanks for the help.

Every time I crank the truck the computer tells me to "drive to clean exhaust" and then changes to "cleaning exhaust". Once the message says "Clean Complete", it goes right back into regen with the same messages on the computer.

if you cant get it to reset i think i would call the dealership and have them send a tow truck. im not sure it would do any damage to drive it that far in regen but it wouldn't be normal. do you have anything done to it as far as modifications?

I have no mods, bone stock. Mainly because of warranty.
I was wondering if I should drive it that far in regen. Thanks for the suggestion that is what I will probably do. I have owned turbo diesels in the past but never dealt with this regen crap.

regens only occur when driving. If you have the message update(which you obviously do) the truck is only supposed to regen above 30mph. So, if it is saying all that, sitting in the driveway, something is wrong.
However, like i stated, it is safe to drive your truck during a normal regen, and put it in any condition that you would put it in under normal conditions.

My truck will still regen in park. Haven't gotten the new flash, and they stopped doing it due to 'unintended consequences' with the transmission.

Well. I guess I am just going to have to take it into the dealership. It's just a big pain in the butt.
