I’m looking to purchase a Used OBD2 Scanner and bi-directional tool that can Perform a Forced DPF Regen. If it has another other options then great, but the only requirement is that it can do the regen on my 2015 Ram bighorn Ecodiesel. If any one has an older unit that they no longer need; they recently upgraded; or retired out of the business, then I will buy your tool. Looking to keep it under 200.00 I have PayPal or can meet up if you are close to the New England (Maine, N.H Vermont, Mass) Area

Look into alfaobd, costs around 100$ for software and obd adapter. I believe it will do a stationary desoot. Either way it’s a valuable tool for these trucks

What Tramper said. Plus, I found that an Edge Insight CTS2 does it much easier

I bought a scan tool through Harbor freight. Cost 269 plus tax but it works excellent for doing Regen. It's also good for other vehicles that I have. It's a Zurich zr15s

I bought an INNOVA 5160rs from AutoZone for just the forced Regen...it has RAM software I want to say it was $260 don't buy the Harbor Freight they wouldn't give a return if it didn't have the Regen. Just follow the directions from an online manual hit start it does the rest I don't want to sell it, I'm just pointing out that AutoZone has what you need

Does anyone know the procedures for doing a regen with alphaOBD?

Here is what I have recorded.
Use with caution as I have not tried it. I use my Edge CTS2 to cause a regen.

Thanks for the comment on the post. I ended up dusting off a old android tablet cleaned everything off it and downloaded AlfaOBD App. Since then I’ve spent hours learning all of the things it can do and have barely scratch the surface. It only helps on my dodge truck but I ended up using Torque pro for the other vehicles.

The AlfaOBD App has been a game changer in regards to my control/knowledge of my truck. Other then the Numerous things you can do in the Alfaobd app, the best feature is actually how helpful and quick the developers are at responding to any questions you might have.

The one downside I’ve found with the app is that you can, if you are not carful mess up your vechile settings. I’ve never done this but it’s because I knew to be carful with it. The very first thing I did was save a backup of my original truck settings before I touched anything else

Other then the Regen I’ve used the app a ton for linking my truck to upgrades I’ve added such as LED lights. Rear heated seats. And hopefully soon truck-bed lights, and it’s all setup as if it was a factory feature when I purchased the truck, no separated switches.

I feel like I’m pitching the app like I’m a salesman for it but honestly I can’t speak highly enough if it if you have even a mild interest in your truck/maintenance or upgrades to it

Alfa is deff a necessity for these trucks! If you get bored disable the fog lamp dropout when high beams are enabled, much better lighting!
