Re: The Towing thread

It is a much quicker job than I imagined to take the corners off.
I almost went too far when I took the edges of my HR hitch.

Just a forced regen and everything reset. No problem since (6000+km) but I know how you feel. I never got a straight answer about the cause.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Re: Is DPF issue for 2014 CRD fixed now?

I towed in all three modes and I'd have to say it didn't seem to make much difference. (This should probably now move to the towing thread).

Re: Is DPF issue for 2014 CRD fixed now?

The NS Pajero (my previous car) suffered a similar issue. Pages of problems on similar forums. It was eventually fixed with a software update as you suggest.
