    YOU SAID THAT IS THE FUEL REGULATOR.HOW DO YOU KNOW? HAVE YOU USED A SCANNER? IF SO THE FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR IS THE FAULT MEANS THAT IT DOESNT KEEP THE CORRECT PRESSURE OF FUEL FOR THE INJECTION SYSTEM AND SURELY EITHER YOU WILL HAVE SLOW ACCELERATION HESITATION OF ACCELERATION,STALLS,CUTS OUT ETC.... FOR YOUR SAFETY NOT ONLY ON CAR BRAKING,ALSO AVOID AND RISK OF CAUSING ANY ACCIDENT,PLEASE TRY TO FIX IT BEFORE YOU USE IT.

MY FRIEND SINCE YOU HAVE THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON AND THE EPC IT IS VERY RISKY TO DRIVE IT BECAUSE YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT FAULT OR PROBLEM YOU HAVE ON THE VEHICLE,HOW BIG IS IT AND WHAT WILL CAUSED. IF I WAS IN YOUR POSITION THE FIRST THING I HAD TO DO, I WOULD CALL AN EXPERT TO CHECK MY VEHICLE WITH A SCANNER TO FIND FIRST THE FAULT AND IF IT IS REPAIRABLE TO FIX IT AND DRIVE SAFE AND PROBABLY WITH LOW COST ON SPENDING MONEY.

SOURCE: VW PASSAT 03 V6. EPC AND TRACTION LIGHT COME ON INTERMITTANTLY.

First, to read VW codes you will want to get yourself a $50 VAG tool. It will read all your systems, not just the ECU.
Electronic Power Control can go out for several reasons. Check your brake lights with the car running. Check you radiator fluid level. If the car is running bad, you could have bad spark plugs/ wires or ignition coil.
The traction control is tied into the ABS system and often causes problems here as well. Each wheel has a speed sensor and magnet wheel in the hub. You can check these for damage by removing the tires for access. The sensors come out by hand, and inside the hole they come out of is the place to check the magnets with a flash light. Apply a small amount of wheel bearing grease to the sensor.
The control unit goes out in these systems at an alarming rate. They can be easily removed, and repaired for under $200 at modulemaster.com
Since it is intermit, I suspect most likely a loose sensor, or electrical connector.
If your brakes feel squishy at all, bleed the brake lines of air and contaminants.
Good Luck!

SOURCE: 2003 Volkswagon Passat. The epc light comes on

EPC refers to the drive by wire system. This system, generally speaking, encompasses the throttle pedal and its position sensors (it needs to know where your gassin' foot is) and the throttle body.

Most likely, the EPC light and its associated faults for this scenario are a symptom, not the problem. Meaning the actual root cause is causing the no-start/no crank issue AND fault codes related to the EPC system.

And the most likely root cause is an ignition switch, NOT the engine speed sensor.

With a bad engine speed sensor, the car will still crank all damn day (or until the battery dies) but the car won't start.

If you get a no-crank issue, and then it eventually starts either with or without an EPC light, again, the most likely problem is the ignition switch. Not the starter, not the battery (though the battery proper and the cable connections must be perfection itself to rule them out.) You can get these issues with a visually perfect but still faulty battery connection.

Vw passat epc light on


the belt slips, and the engine goes into limp mode, and the epc light will come on- to protect itslef until its fixed. Once its fixed...you may have to decode her up to 9 times to get it to start...I did. Ive done 5 timing belt changes on these blasted cars and every time it slips a tooth and the engine cuts itself off with epc, i have to decode it at least 8 times. good luck. and to the idiot who said gas cap..get a life .

My epc and engine light came on and won't star in a 2006 2.0t passat any ideas


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.

The ingnition won`t start, how dow I by pass the EPC and start, the car was running fine but started not switching, when turning the key nothing happens, what is the EPC for? and how do I fix it with out...


Your EPC stands for "Electronic Power Control" and without it (bypassing it, as you stated), you will not be going anywhere in your car. The car MUST have the EPC on/enabled to run, as I have been told. The VW Passat does not have a throttle cable... it is controlled electronically. 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. You will need to take it to a mechanic/repair shop that is knowledgable in foreign automobiles (especially VW's) and has the appropriate tools and equipment to read any "codes" being kicked out by the computer.

I have a 2001 New Passat with the EPC light coming on randomly and it will idle high but next time I start the car it goes away. I think you will have to take it in to the dealer.
