Roy,
If you have dpf the filter might need cleaning.
To do this,select Sport mode and drive at at least 2000rpm at, at least, 40mph for 15 or so minutes.
If the dpf is clogged this will burn the particles off and light will go off.

Thanks Nimrod,

The engine is 3.2 petrol V6 so it has no dpf.
i have also read in the manual that i should reduce speed controllaly to what you have suggested.
Thanks.
