If you have dashboard DPF warning light, it means the soot built up in the car DPF system is not being burned correctly. You are supposed to refer to your manufacturer owners’ handbook about how to burn off the soot in the DPF, but sometimes it may does not work, or you have no idea how to do then you will be charged at an expensive price.
The professional technicians will use some professional DPF reset tools i.e original Autel MaxiCheck DPF reset and original VPECKER Easydiag, which can reset the DPF warning light, reset DPF fault codes, Reset ECU after a new DPF is installed, and reset the EOLYS light message after adding the additive.
