That light comes on when there is a fault with electronics or emission controll systems. You'll need to plug in a VAG COM to read the codes and see what the problem is. AutoZone will usually let you borrow a VAG COM, or you can take it to a shop and they can read it for you. The light won't go off until you fix the problem.

SOURCE: 2004 Volkswagen Pointer After servicing the

Just had a similar problem. Took my 2003 Volkswagen Jetta 2.0l auto in for an oil change. They also checked the air filter. When finished, I started it up and the EPC and MIL (aka CEL, check engine light) lamps came on.

Figured it was just a glich caused by draining/refilling the oil and that it would reset itself by the next day. No luck. So, after checking to make sure the gas cap was tight, I poked my head under the hood. Made sure the oil fill cap was on tight. They also checked the engine air filter so I took a look over there. Low and behold, the ding-a-ling at the shop neglected to reconnect the MAF sensor cable. That is the electronic connector on the air intake hose between the engine and the air filter box.

Plugged that back in and bing, EPC light went out. MIL still on, but if I recall, after a "major" event, the MIL won't go out until it is reset. Taking it back to the shop to have the code cleared.

So, long story short, if you get an EPC and MIL, first check to make sure that the MAF is properly connected.

The EPC light is connected to a pressure sensor in the block. Open the oil filler cap, release the pressure (and check your oil while you're at it). If you don't have a real problem, the light should go out.

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.
In your case check and replace if necessary the brake pedal position switch placed above brake pedal in the pedals support.

What does letters EPC mean when it lights up on dashboard


Usually EPC, means electronic pressure control. This is a solenoid inside the transmission. Very common replacement part. Being it is a VW, it could be some thing else. Have the codes read and repost.

What is the epc light


You have an engine code for something. Take it into a local parts store and most of them will scan for free... otherwise look online or on ebay and you can find scanners for cheap. VW's get a lot of lights it seems because everything is really regulated.
