EPC light on my dashboard

Hi there

Over the past two days my EPC light (yellow) has appeared on my dashboard and disappeared again. My car is driving perfectly well and I have had no problems with it. I notice it appears when I ave been driving for over an hour or more.

I drive a 06 VW Polo

Is my car safe to drive or do I need to take it to a garage?

Hi Shamiza, I have a Mercedes Diesel Motorhome and I use Bio Diesel, if I don't dilute the fuel with regular diesel a red light comes on EDC (Electronic Diesel Control) I then go into limp mode no more than3,500 rpm this is in case I do damage to high pressure pump. So I am presuming your vehicle is Petrol and possibly requires a service of sorts to the fuel system? Electronic Petrol Control??
It is just a thought and if it were me I would be knocking my Vw dealership for further advice.
I hope this helps

Epc light came on at dashboard


The EPC light means something is wrong in the drive-by-wire path, the "gas pedal" potentiometers or the electric motor-controlled throttle body, etc.

I have a 2008 Ford Escape.While I was driving , a yellow wrench appeared on the dashboard. I parked, switched it off and restarted the engine.The sign disappeared. This happened twice in two weeks' time....


The check engine light is not something new

It has been around since 1983,some 31 years

Have a shop check for codes,diagnose them &
make the repairs

I check for codes the same day any dash light appears
& diagnose things with a couple days including any repairs

Most likely you never replaced your front oxygen sensors at
100,000 miles & you have a few bad ignition coils, thus cylinder
misfires that are very very common on all fords

Hi,My epc light goes on, stays on for at most a day and then dissapear again. This problem repeats itself often.


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.

Warning symbol on dashboard


It's to do with traction control...
usually means the skid control has armed itself because the car has detected a lack of traction (if you skidded) or the car has sensed it is cold

My epc light keeps coming on and then one day when I was driving a big red light came on that said stop


I have a 2002 Passat, 1.8L Turbo. I had a problem where my EPC light kept coming on, and I would have a lot of trouble starting my car in hot weather. The EPC light stands for Electronic Pedal Control. When you press on the gas/brake, the pedal doesn't pull a wire like in the past, it's all done by computers. The sensor is saying that somewhere along the path from the pedal, to the brake that something is acting up.

I took my car into the VW dealer nearby and they said the sensor was going bad, and that's why the light was coming on. They informed me that once the sensor went bad, my car would stall, and likely not start again until replaced. I decided to have it replaced (about $250), and I haven't had a problem since.
