In the previous article, we show the guide to do DPF Regen. on a 2012 VW Passat TDI by scanning the VIN under “Intelligent Diagnose” function with Launch X431 Pro5. In this post, you’ll learn a quicker way to perform this function with “Service Function”.
Let’s see how to do it.
Before operation, use SmartBox 3.0 to connect vehicle and X-431 Pro5 via the OBDII extension cable and Bluetooth properly.
Select Service Function>> DPF REGEN>> DPF REGEN software>> VW
Switch on ignition
Select the engine type and tap “Start”
Then tap “01-Particle Filter Service Regeneration (Repair Group 26)”
Start the DPF Regeneration process
The final test result is success.
The steps are the same as the “Intelligent Diagnose” method below, but it’s faster, saves time.
