AdBlue Removal

AdBlue is a system to reduce NOx emissions on vehicles. The AdBlue solution is carried in a separate tank to the vehicles fuel and is sprayed into the exhaust system upstream of an SCR catalyst filter. Whilst this method of emissions control is highly effective, the vehicle owner has to refill the AdBlue tank which can become expensive.

Additionally most vehicles will only permit the driver to travel a limited range with the AdBlue tank empty before the ECU disables re-starting the vehicles engine. This is to force refilling of the AdBlue tank. AdBlue removal software disables the AdBlue features within the ECU, to stop this happening and therefor reduces costs.

AdBlue System Faults

AdBlue system faults, such as faulty level sensor or injectors, will also cause an AdBlue system to allow only limited range before preventing a restart of the vehicle. ByteFLASH software allows these faults to be disabled within the ECU to allow the vehicle to be run without the need to replace any components.

ByteFLASH Touch

AdBlue SCR Removal software is available on the ByteFLASH Touch handheld OBD programmer for a wide range of vehicles. ByteFLASH AdBlue Removal software can be combined with any of our other software patches or tuning programmes.

Visiting an Installer

All ByteFLASH installers can offer AdBlue/SCR removal software for your vehicle. If the ByteFLASH handheld programmer is not able to support your vehicle, you may need to visit an installer to have the software loaded onto your vehicle.

UK Law

If you are located outside of the UK, please check your local laws. For UK customers and installers, Under the Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations and the Road Traffic Act 1988 it is an offence to use on a road a vehicle which has been modified in such a way that it no longer complies with the air pollutant emissions standards it was originally designed to meet. Removal of emissions control devices is intended to support motorsport and off-road applications. Further information on the UK law can be found on the UK government website here.
