Dear Customer,

1
check your sensors 1st,all sensors must be good

2
if all sensors are working good than check your engine firing sequence,some times happens when sequence was wrong,

3
check your exhaust and carborator tuning pin that creates the batter combination for firing in bore for batter performance & less emitions ,so check is it ok or not than go to your nearest service center that havad certified mechanics,

till you read this you had solve this problem definatly,

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!

Hi there?
The EPC lights may come on if the brake light switch is not working, check and make sure the brake lights work, if not then you'll need to replace the brake light switch.

Epc light on dash and brake lights not working


I doubt it's the fuse. A very common problem is the brake switch on your brake pedal goes bad. This causes the EPC light and no brake lights. This switch was recalled by VW in 2007. Here is the story from USA Today

VW POLO-52 plate EPC light on dash


My Polo had a similar problem and the brake light switch at the brake pedal was replaced. Then the computer was reset and the EPC light issue was resolved. It has something to do with the engine management, when sensing the light switsh being activated, retarding the power of the engine.
