SOURCE: my epc light went on in my 2002 volkswagen jetta

Take it to the dealer, the EPC warning light - and even more the failsafe run which doesn't allow you drive faster than 20mph) is an indication of serious motor troubles. They can read the ECU faultcodes, which should be a good startingpoint for troubleshooting the cause ...

You could do some basic troubleshooting like checking the air filter, the oil level, the spark plugs, etc. You didn't fill it up with bad gas, did you ? And does the engine make strange noises/vibration when running idle ? In case you fixed some obvious cause, you can dis- and reconnect the battery to erase the engine's faultcode. If it's not fixed, the EPC (and failsafe run) will simply come on again.

My advice would be not to drive it untill it's fixed to prevent more potential damage.

SOURCE: EPC LIGHT AND TRANSMISION STICK SHIFT LOCKED

Brake light switch is what I'd look at. These are very problematic, there was a recall on a large number of Vw's for this reason. If this hasn't been done call a stealership and have them run your VIN# to see if your car falls under this recall. My 02' had the switch recalled TWICE in 3 years

SOURCE: epc light just came on 2003 jetta, what is epc?

Electronic Power Control. It controls the power to the wheels to keep them from skidding by keeping them at the same speed. It works best in the snow/ice/and mud. It gives the driver more control of the car in extreme situations. ABS keep you from skidding in a stop, and EPC keeps you from skidding under acceleration.
The car will drive like a normal car with out it. The problem can be found by using a VAG scan tool. It could be a wheel sensor, or the module.
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.

EPC LIGHT WONT STOP in my 02 Jetta


When was the last time you changed your Air filter( A dirty filter can put MAF sensor out of range). How about the fuel filter (Fuel starvation). These filters should be changed every 30,000 miles . It is normal for all of the dash lights to come on if the engine stops running. Is the Jetta a Diesel or Gas. Perform The OBDII scan again to see if current faults are present. Do the cheapest fixes first. Also check oil often. The low oil sensor will trigger engine shut down if more than 1 quart low

EPC means Electronic Pedal Control. Fly-by-wire for your gas pedal--instead of a mechanical cable that pulls an accelerator linkage on the engine, there's an electronic device on the gas pedal, an electronic device on the throttle body and a wire between them.
You should check the sistem with diagnostic tool.
