The motor is regenerating keep driving a couple of km so the regeneration is completed to keep your particle filter clean.
Or if you have an auxillary parkingheater the idle goes up to 1000rpm but what i can understand there is not so many Caddys that have aux heater in GB so it's most likely regenerating.
And if it only happens when the motor is up to temperature it's the regen.

Yes I think it got the recall done before my ownership
Will a stage 1 remap remove this issue

Cheers guys and girls

AFAIK , you need to get the 'rollback' done first.....some people say different ,but I did it this way....then the remap ;)

As stedlocks says get the roll back first which puts the caddy back to a pre update tune , then a map , the mapper may be able to do the roll back it all depends what system he has , my roll back was done bye the mapper and it’s transformed my van , thanks to Mat at dub unit Tamworth 👍
