Motorhome Remap after DPF Issues
After slowly making its way to the workshop, this motorhome was in need of some diagnostics after going into limp mode. After plugging the motorhome into the diagnostic machine it came up with fault codes that we see when a vehicle has dpf issues. So this was the first place that we would look.
The dpf on this 2012 Fiat Ducato 42 Multijet motorhome was quite accessible underneath, so we removed it see how the motorhome ran. We started up the engine and took it out for a short test drive, it drove perfectly, confirming our diagnosis.
Now we knew for sure that the dpf was the issue we cut open the casing of the dpf and this is what we found…
The dpf had become so hot when trying to regenerate the actual filter had imploded completely blocking it up. As you can see in the picture below nothing could move through the filter and this was what had caused the motorhome to go into limp mode.

With the dpf removed and the casing fitted back into place we began the task of reprogramming the ecu with the dpf software and then a remap. The motorhome remap taking it to around 180bhp.
Do you own a motorhome that is having dpf issues or simply would like more pulling power?
