Duckhunter - I think (looking at your garage) that you have a WK2 not a KL so you wouldn't have the stop/start option (sometimes referred to as Idle Stop on other brands) as a choice on your EVIC display. The WK2 does not have that feature.
On the KL, that is where the regen message appears because for obvious reasons, the S/S function is disabled whilst the regen takes place.
When the message appears, one doesn't do anything - except continue to drive (or not). It is an informational message only and you do get a similar message at times on the WK2.
There is a thread (a huge thread) about the regen of the Australian WK2 CRD's in the Export section of this site.
I have never had this message appear on our MY14 WK2 (build date - April 2013) Overland CRD (even before the mid-Dec update). I was however, the exception rather than the rule (but thankfully never entered Limp mode and the mid-Dec 2014 TSB appears to have corrected the issue anyway).
However, my KL has a build date of Sept 11th 2014 - a good 3 months before the WK2 DPF TSB was released. So I always had a niggle in the back of my head as to whether the KL CRD was going to be affected by the dreaded DPF Limp Mode issue.
I got excited when I saw the message on the EVIC - hence my post. I'm confident now that the KL will regen when necessary.
