Question about 2006 Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

I have a 2006 jetta 2.5 and the epc light came on and I took it to the dealership to have it repaired. The very next day the car started doing the same thing. They replaced the crank sensor. When i took it back the second time they replaced the same exact sensor again the next day the car started doing the same exact thing. Im assuming the crank sensor is not the problem. Have anybody had this problem before and if so did u find a answer to fix the problem?

Crank sensor has nothing to do with the EPC.
I'd think it is one of the pedal potentiometers.
Start by doing a scan.

SOURCE: EPC light

This sounds like a "brake light switch" failure in a 5 speed manual transmission car. Please tell me your car has a manual transmission. A scanner, or code resetting tool will not fix this problem. I'm surprised that a dealer would allow this to get out the door without telling you that this car qualifies for a "campaign," or "recall" replacement of the brake light switch under the "N4 program" guidelines. In fact, this program is actually called the "N4 campaign." Good luck.

SOURCE: 2002 vm jetta reset electronic throttle control

sounds like you need to reset readiness ,which resets throttle and several other things. unfortunatly it needs to be done with vagcom or vcds software, so back to dealer or a reputable VW repair shop

EPC= electronic pedal control it is a sensor and is located in front of the brake pedal . Depress brake with one hand ,the sensor with the other and release fast. this should disengauge the EPC lock listen for a thunk made by the EPC lock disengaging.

Go to auto zone. They will use a code reader to help you find exact component or components having errors. If its not the EPC.
it sounds like your mass air sensor or the throttle control sensor may be bad. Your gas and air may not be mixing properly thus causing your car to sputter, hesitate, and idle rough. It could be some other thinks like a bad plug or wire etc. Good Luck hope this helps. Please rate me if this helps thank you.

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 is not coming on when I turn on the ignition in my 2006 Jetta


Well the EPC light is for electronic power or pedal control, which refers to the gas pedal and throttle body. The light can come on for a number of reasons including issues with the fly-by-wire gas pedal, throttle body, cruise control, brake light switch, and others.
Not coming on when you turn the key on for a test could be a blown fuse for the computer since the EPC light is not on a fuse. You may have to check them all to make sure. Of course the bulb could be out too.

What does the EPC light control on a 2002 Jetta 2.0? Also, the radio stations do not come in very clear, any suggestions?


it's a traction control for driving in snowy climates you can turn it off and able to spin the wheels more freely but i suggest leaving it on,as for the radio i'd check the antenna if screwed in tight or missing if tight take it to the dealership if still under warrenty from the factory
