    Default DTUK CRD2+ help

    Hi all,
    I have a Vec 1.9cdti 150 auto(dpf) and just bought one of these CRD2+ tuning boxes second hand. The seller said it came off his Vec estate with DPF so I was happy I had the right one.(He could have lied of course)
    The performance increase was massive and instant with a big wow factor but after a few minutes the EML light comes on(no limp mode and gone on restarting) and also needed 2 DPF regens in 1 day.
    So my question is-for other users of this box on a car with DPF is there a best setting to use and maybe cure this?
    I did call DTUK directly and got rebuffed as Im not the original owner although I do have the invoice(fair enough I suppose but even Vauxhall talk to me and I didnt buy my car from them!) which was a shame really as it would have helped to know if the box was shipped with the right software for a car with DPF and stop me chasing a fix rather than just get fresh software on it.
    Any help/advice would be appreciated
    Thanks, Chris

    Quick couple of points for info-Boost sensor and EGR valve cleaned and blanking plate with 9mm hole inserted. Other than that the car is standard with a strong service history, new oil and filters too. Currently set on Mickie map +10

    I can confirm the above, turn it down 1 or 2 positions and you should be fine.

    Agree...but unless the guy who lives round the corner is still doing this for free or your cheque is in the post then its not for me right now.
    Sorry Paul I know your being helpful but its not the question I asked and i,m a bit fed up from my searches of most tuning box threads turning into remap/box/nothing debates
