How do I clear a flashing DPF warning? There is a button on the dash board marked DPF.
How can I get English manuals instead of Japanese?

Do you

Okay, makes sense. Change the fuel filter. It is partially clogged and may have some water retained as well.

I changed all the filters. What is the DPF button on the dash board for?

The DPF ( diesel particle filter) is a filter that removes some of the environmentally harmful properties from your diesel exhaust system. When that light flashes on the dash, this simply means that the filter needs regeneration. There should be a button on your dash that would allow you to do this. The process takes approximately twenty minutes. Park the vehicle in a well ventilated area, pull the hand break up, hold the button down for a couple seconds and the DPF regeneration process will be initiated. Do not press any of the foot pedals while the process in ongoing. You may hear the engine idle sound change as the process is happening.
