My car had not been used for 3 weeks, when I ran it for a few miles yesterday the engine management light came on, I used a obdII to find out the code, the code is p2463, the car is running ok, I went from Edinburgh to Liverpool and engine seems ok. Why is this code coming on but won't be cleared

it's the only fault code, no, usually doing 100 mile+ journeys

Hi there thanks and sorry for the delayed response

Ok the fault code you have indicates a blocked DPF assembly

The cause of the DPF becoming blocked is numerous failed regenerations

This is commonly caused by a faulty fuel vapouriser assembly

You will not be able to clear the fault code until the DPF is clear

I would advise replacing the fuel vapouriser and carrying out a static regeneration of the DPF

In order to resolve your issue
