What I meant is that a service regen ie the video is similar to active regen when the ecu forces a regen by heating it all upto 650degrees.
Active regen will be triggered by ecu when passive regen hasn’t been achieved due to city driving conditions ie not enough heat and exhaust pressure like on the highway.
So could we say the difference between active and service regen is that the latter is triggered manually? Knowing that there is a soot limit which once reached will put car in limp mode and disable active regen.
