I got a OBD reader some time ago that is supposed to work on these tractors according to another thread. I just need to install the corresponding app on my phone.

I have one as well with the ELM327 command set, I didn't hook it to the tractor, I should have. I use Torque Lite for the phone app. Worked well for cars in the past.

That's the same one Avenger suggested.

Well, I picked up the MT240 this afternoon, the sensor is part number is 40273633 and it is $101.89 if you needed one out of warranty.

I got home and within 5 minutes of operating, I had a regen! They did a regen at the dealership, and they also cleaned the DPF they said the bad sensor caused it to soot up some. I texted the dealer about the regen after 5 minutes of use, they said keep using it, and less than 2 hours later another regen! And just prior to that regen, I had the 1/sec blinking regen light (Soot rate over 120%) Something fubar!

Something isn't quite right yet as you shouldn't be seeing regeneration that often. Understand that they replaced the differential pressure sensor but that to me doesn't explain the"heavy fuel usage" that you mentioned earlier. A leaking injector(s) could cause both increased fuel usage and regeneration frequency but so could other electronic issues.

Seems like the dealership may have to look at it again if it doesn't clear up for you.

yeah, they mentioned ECU and/or wiring harness as well. It will be back at the dealership before too long. I need it here this weekend, and I have a grapple that should be delivered here very soon, need it here to fork it off the truck, then it can go back to the dealership. I may see if they have a loaner, but I don't believe that they do.

I agree.

EA Grapple?!? :unsure:

Mine should arrive around the 22nd.

On other news, I disked and spread Lime this weekend for the food plot and no issues.

Homestead Implements grapple. I called them this morning, it should ship mid next week.
Dealer does have a Farmtrac 535 they'd loan me, but it is abotu 2x the weight of my MT240, not sure I want to haul that.
We ran the stump grinder about 7 hours this weekend, no codes, no regens, so that was good.
