Hey all. My 2014 summit diesel has had to go to the dealer 3 times for the 100% DPF full problem since it doesn't seem to do the auto regen. This time they told me the filter is "too full" and has to be replaced for a total of $4200. And this time they say it is not covered by the powertrain warranty. Fighting with FCA on that now, but I have reached my limit. Love the jeep (my 5th), love the engine, hate the DPF and software.

So the question - I am ready to fab a downpipe and flash my ECR for a delete, but how do I clear the permanent DPF error? Will the ECR flash take care of that too? This is my first diesel so I am not even sure where to go for a pipe, but this seems like the only rational thing to do.

I have seen several threads on deletes and mods but most are for performance bumps. I tow often, but don't really need any more performance since I love the mileage. Are there any other mods I really should do? Is EGR delete part of it? And is there a website or single thread that walks through the process well? I have read many and they are all over the place.

thanks - Chris in Colorado

Also, just read in the manual that the particulate filter is covered for 8 years or 80,000 miles. Anyone else been denied for the repair?

You have 'one of those dealers' - you need to report them to FCA and Feds:
"The Clean Air Act requires manufacturers of light-duty vehicles to provide two federal emission control warranties: (A) "Performance Warranty" and (B) "Design and Defect Warranty." ... Specified major emission control components are covered for the first 8 years or 80,000 miles (whichever first occurs)".

I just got the "100% full" message for the first time at ~52k miles. Its not in official limp mode but its very sluggish, takes a while to get up to speed. My local service department is very good so I don't expect any issues when I take it in, I've already talked to the service tech and he's astutely aware of these issues. The thing that pisses me off the most is that there is no way to manually initiate the regen mode. I drove about 200 highway miles this past weekend with the vehicle not at full power which would have been a perfect opportunity to clean the filter, but driving in manual mode at higher revs did nothing to reset the system or engage a regen. Whatever...I'm just a little closer to paying the $750 to the Green Diesel Engineering guys for a new ECM.

Just want to say a big thanks to all who post. Im new to the fourm but have a 14 Grand overland eco and been looking alot at deletes on here. Lots of good info. Just left the dealer for a 100% full filter. Talked to the tech who was cool about clearing it and doing a park regen for cheap. I just ordered Autel Maxicheck Pro EPB/ABS/SRS/SAS/BMS/DPF/TPMS Auto Scanner OBD2 Trouble Code Reader and it says it will initiate a park regen. I will keep everyone informed.

I ordered this scanner Autel Maxicheck Pro EPB/ABS/SRS/SAS/BMS/DPF/TPMS Auto Scanner OBD2 Trouble Code Reader, seems it can trigger a park mode regen, but DPF 100% full is a permanent code, every time when you start the engine, it'll pop up & cause the regen cmd send fail.

To clear a permanent code, scanner need mode 10, unfortunately this scanner doesn't have this mode.

Will bring my 15 GC to dealer to clear the code & regen DPF, it said around cad$1xx for this.
