Default Inconvenient regens.

Happened tonight just as I pulled up outside house after work - had to sod off on a 20 min drive to complete it, last one made me late for work, one before that was on pulling in at golf club (aborted) What an inconsiderate system, there should be a manual override.

Turning the engine off stops it, or have I missed something?

Yes I know that but isn't it wise to let it complete the process?? Or have I missed something?

On the fence with this one lol... I argue both ways, engine on to complete or off to interrupt.. Either way its a system that was rushed ahead of EU laws and needs to be deleted from the ecu to stop it happening.......

I thought the regen continued even when you parked up and left the car?

I'm sure it doesn't... it needs the fuel to burn at the much higher rate etc..
I could be wrong but that's how I understood them to be!

Seen a set of traffic light LEDs fitted to cars to warn you of impending regens

So where do you connect such a traffic light?
I could do with just one led shining when the regen is ongoing. Is there a regen-relay were I can steal some juice for a led so it shines up when it switches on?
Conecting a force-regen-button is probably much more complicated but seems to be what the thread starter wants.

The fan continues on for about 5 minutes after turning engine off but that's just to cool everything down again I believe. I've heard it's not wise to abort the regeneration process as it dumps fuel in your engine. As I do mainly urban driving I like to let it complete and it works very well now I'v got my head round the process thanks to this forum. I've checked my regens with planet and they occur about every 350-400 miles so getting used it now.
