EPC light a4

I have a 2003 A4, the EPC light has been going on and off for a the last month or so. Usually when I restart the car maybe 1/2 to hour or so after having used it. The engine will crank for 30 secs and will not start. After a few trys it starts again. Should I address the problem ASAP before it gets worse, or can this wait till I see what happens next?

I would check the fuel relay on this. They always go bad and the symptom is that as you are driving the car cuts out and will not start. Leaves you having to coast to a stop. Problem will only get worse to a point where it will not start again until replaced.

I have a 2002 AUTO Audi A4. About 2 minutes into


Dear produceqa_de,

I am not entirely familliar with this particular model, although in some similar models that I have worked on The epc (on deisel models) usualy indicates a problem with the particle filter.

This means that if your car has a particle filter and it has not reached a temperature that it can clean itself for a few months, it may become clogged and cause a restriction for the engine.

If you take your car to an audi dealer the mechanic will be able to do a quick test to confirm and he may then be able to overide the cleaning process and clean the filter. I would advise that this is done asap as dammage may be caused from very high exhaust temperatures.

Reguards Luke.

The EPC light came on while I was driving down the highway (60 miles per hour) in my 2002 Jetta. Then, after I stopped and put gas in the car, it almost did not start.
