    Default DPF Re-gen indicator

    In the manual is seems to say that the pre-heater light comes on when the DPF regens,

    The control indicator will continue to flash until the self-cleaning operation is complete.
    The only way I know is when the MPG drops through the floor, so should the indicator flash ?

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : 150

    Year : 05

    Mileage : 74000

    Default

    Yes it used to flash when it wanted to initiate a regen, but with the later software update they removed this 'feature' as people were bringing the car in reporting it as a problem.

    Its free-ish; if you get your car serviced at Vx then they should check for software updates as part of the service
