I was a little concerned when both the Electronic Stability Control and the Electronic Stability Control Off lights came on but apparently that is just what it does when extra traction is needed. It resets itself but only after a bit of normal driving. Likewise, the low tyre pressure warning light takes a bit of normal driving to reset itself after re-inflating the tyres.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Hi,
Does anyone know if there is an indication on the instrument panel of a WK2 CRD when there is a “regeneration” of the exhaust particulate filter occurring?

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I have not seen any light that would indicate this.
From my understanding the DFP is right up near the turbo and does not need to cycle like the older cars. The DFP runs hot due to its location and is always burning off the soot.
The older systems were further down the exhaust like a Catalytic converter and needed the car to over inject fuel causing a heating of the DFP to burn off the soot.
I am not 100% on this, as the info is not easy to find, but this is my understanding of the process in our CRD's.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

It isn't in the handbook, so it does not occur.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I admit that I don't know, however I do suspect that the DPF still cycles.

Sometimes, even on a cold night, when my wife backs into the garage the cooling fan is roaring, the car smells quite hot and also smells a bit like burnt diesel fumes. You can even see some smoke in the headlights, yet the temperature gauge inside appears about normal. I have always taken this as when the DPF is in the middle of a burn off.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

A certain white 3.0CRD (SWIM) allegedly took on a V8 Falcon this morning from standing start. He allegedly bottled it at 120kmh when he realized he was not pulling away. This car is AWESOME

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I hear Ya!! 0-100kmh he was about a second in front passing the CRD at around 60kmh but after that could not pull away. Wonder what he thought when he read the CRD badge Then it was 6.00am so I switched off the PS3 and left for work.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Thanks everyone for the input on front recovery hook for my Overland 2012.
The one that came with the Overland is only for minor road recovery as in the States. I will be having one fitted before heading up the beach.


A further question I have is I cannot see any tow / Haul switches on my Overland and cannot find anything in the manual other than stating if equipped.

Is the air suspension the reason there is now tow /haul switches in the dash.

If anyone has a 2012 Overland can you let me know if these switched are in your model or is deleted.

Regards
Strategy
