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.
