We were asked to take a look at 2012 Vauxhall Zafira.
It had the DPF warning light showing and a P2459 DPF regen frequency code. We also found a cylinder 3 glow plug fault.
We carried out our DPF assessment.
No issues were found.
Customer had filled in our questionnaire form and we picked up on short journeys being the culprit.
We then carried out a road test, and all still ok.
A long drive to the coast at the weekend which allowed the DPF to perform a regeneration on it’s own, resulting in a fix. Problem solved.
We’ve asked our customer to come back for a follow up in a couple of weeks time.
Our DPF assessment and questionnaire was crucial in ruling out other issues while allowing us to accurately and efficiently find the answers to this DPF fault.
