Display Needed to Know When Truck is in Regeneration Mode

Ford needs to give the dash command center the functionality for the Cleaning Exhaust Filter Message to stay on until the regeneration cleaning process is complete.

This functionality was available in the 2008 and is of value to us truck owners.

How do we get Ford to return this functionality?

I agree. You would think it could just be programed in the computer to stay on until finished.

Even when you go into Vehicle Information it doesn't show up as a message. I wonder why they took it out.

Yes it would be nice to have message stay on but knowing it is just as easy. Just run the mileage app in the message center; go a 3 steps in and set it to 5 minutes, then back out to the 2nd step in. Each bar is mileage during the previous 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5th previous minute interval, and average mileage since reset is a line across the top of the bars. When it goes into regen the minute bars will be about 1/2 height of the average, and dramatically less than the previous minute unless you wer flooring it for the entire previous minute. My 450 regens like clockwork every 200 miles and runs for 10 minutes or 10 miles whicherever is more.

I agree. I know the new chevy's display something while the truck is in REGEN mode. I don't understand why the fords don't. It would be very nice to know when it is over and for how long it is going on.

The Chevy's pop up a message that say to keep driving. A friend of mine has one, and has shown me this first hand. My powerstroke however has never done this. I'm heavily contemplating just deleting the dpf/def/cat and tuning my truck.. I would prefer to keep it stock, but at the same time, I'm tired of the regens
