Thanks. Very concise. I will try it if I get a DPF light on today.
The hard part is finding the shorting plug. I spent four hours researching, hunting and calling Freightliner. I post here for the next one who looks for it.
It can be:
As per Freightliner. Under the dash to the left of the steering column on a steel plate next to the data port. Easy to spot because of a little wire loop on the plug top.
There is a post here that shows it in the front left corner of the floor where the big wire looms pass through the floor. It looks white.
There are two FReightliner diagrams showing it above the parking brake next to the data port, behind the parking brake. This appears to be a single with a inline connector rather an actual shorting.
I found 2 possibilities, photos attached. I have no date port
. The plug is in the spaghetti pile behind the gauges and comes from the big loom that feeds the dash. It is gray and has 2 wires going to it. The plug is on one end and has a red spot indented in the cap. Looks promising because it is in the computer to dash loom.
The second possibility is taped to a large loom behind the gauges and it is the light colored single wire with a connector. It has a double (safety?) catch as mentioned in one post and it is taped with masking tape by someone that wanted to be able to find it.
Photos attached. Yours could be in one of these. I tried both but was unable to regen because I had no DPF light. If I get a DPF light today I will pull over and try them and let you know.
