I finally bought a 2009 Accord Tourer a couple of weeks ago (YAY!) but unfortunately the DPF light has now come on and it has gone into limp mode (BOOOOO!).

Unfortunately I am too far from Premier Tuning (Hampshire) to get it there in its current state, but have been recommended a garage about 20 miles away who are going to have a look at it for me. My question is if it is safe to drive it 20 miles whilst it limp mode with the DPF light on? I do t want to cause any more damage but also don’t want to spend unnecessary cash on recovery when I’m likey to ah e a big repair bill coming my way.

Cheers

Roy

I drove 180 miles in limp mode to get my car remapped, that was nearly 2 years ago now. Take from that what you will lol.

I would get it to a garage that can force a regen, then I'd get it upto premier tuning asap and it will be sorted once and for all.

Can limp mode be reset on an 8th gen Accord, even temporarily with the paperclip method on the OBD port ?
