Hi Eric:
If the EPC light or check engine light is on it will show up with a generic OBD2 scanner, I suggest visit some Autozone or Autoshop with OBD Scanner Reader to know exactly what fault code is stored there.

We could give you a better idea what's wrong once you can give me a fault code number.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day

SOURCE: EPC LIGHT

The EPC light has to do definitions. One has to do with the tire pressure monitoring system. The other is the transmission line pressure control. I wish you could give me more information but to take a stab at this problem I will guess that your problem has to do with the brake-light switch (on the brake-pedal). Sounds like the switch is stuck on or defective and the TCC (torque converter clutch) Is getting a constant signal to disengage. Thus that's why you can shift without using the brake-pedal. Good luck.
Let me know how your making out.

SOURCE: 2002 VW Polo - EPC Light and Loss of Power

Hi,
It is a wiring fault, but they are looking on the wrong end. You will need to have a VW dealer "repin" the electrical connector at the throttle body. What this means is, the dealer will take apart the connector, cut off the old pins and crimp on new ones and reassemble the connector. This is a common problem on drive by wire VW's. The dealer has a bulletin on the problem and I don't know why they missed it. They will probably have to order the connector kit however. Good luck!

I have a 2003vw jetta the epc light is on and the will not come out of park nor the stop lights come on,I have already changed the brake switch and still won't work..


EPC light should have nothing to do with the shift interlock,(EPC is traction control) should be a small cap or plug on the console, near the shifter that has the interlock disengage button,usually done with a key,check shift interlock in the owners manual.

How do I reset the EPC light vw beetl


First of all you need to access the Engine Control Module (ECM) using suitable diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC's memored. DTC = Diagnostic Trouble Code. Then you will bu full informed about the root cause of the problem, and you will be able to repair & replace bad pieces and reset the ECM. Then the EPC (Electronic Pedal Control) yellow light will turn OFF.
