    This is AWESOME news, pending confirmation of course. The trick is, that you have to get the car into a state where it requires manual regen in order to test. This might help:

    I had my car in the dealer, they said they had to do that other manual regen from the P249D code after the recall, after the appointment they said the car is all good for now and they had to order a sensor for DPF pressure. I checked with the LX and GMX Pids they didnt do a regen, the soot load was at 15 when I went in and its at 18 now so now the car wont regen and they didnt bother to tell me or they didnt bother to do the regen? I have to call them back I guess.

    Take it back and tell them "uhhh, you forgot to do the regen"

    The car is at 21 Grams of soot. Cruzator has seen it start after it hit 22 grams so hopefully it will regen soon. At about 700 miles right now since the last one.

    22 was when mine started after the recall work was done.

    Yes I'll have to wait for the winter to pass a little bit here so I can put my 50 Hp tune back in. That caused me to have to have a dealer regen last year. Prolly happen again. It has two options in that menu on the scan tool. Service Regen and Allow Regens which I'm presuming the latter to reset the ecm after its been plugged. I don't run any of the ScanGuages or anything like that. Actually I was pretty lazy for about 22000 miles and just kept reseting the MIL for a number 2/ number 3 EGT sensors not jiving till I got a code for number 3 performance. So I changed number 3 and haven't had a CEL for about 6 weeks.
