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.

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 on


EPC means Electronic Power Control.

When this light comes on, yopu could have such a sudden power loss.

However, before visiting a workshop for help, do the following basic checks:

No air leak into the intake system.

Ensure that all the electrical socket in the engine management system are well fitted, no loose contacts.

This light can be caused throttle valve malfunction, MAF, brake lights, EVAP , 02 sensor, secondary air pump.

I suggest you visit a competent dealer or independent shop for help. They will scan the EPC and run 'Throttle Body Adaption'. and diagnos the problem. Ask for a garage with a 'Ross Tech VAG-COM' or a ' VW diagnostics scanner.'

2000 VW JETTA VR6 lights on everywhere!!


Believe it or not, this could be a mass airflow issue. The mass airflow can trigger the lights the ASR and the EPC lights. When i gets really cold, the airflow sensor sends signals to the CPU to readjust the air/fuel mixture.

EPC LIGHT AND TRANSMISION STICK SHIFT LOCKED


Brake light switch is what I'd look at. These are very problematic, there was a recall on a large number of Vw's for this reason. If this hasn't been done call a stealership and have them run your VIN# to see if your car falls under this recall. My 02' had the switch recalled TWICE in 3 years

EPC means Electronic Pedal Control. Fly-by-wire for your gas pedal--instead of a mechanical cable that pulls an accelerator linkage on the engine, there's an electronic device on the gas pedal, an electronic device on the throttle body and a wire between them.
You should check the sistem with diagnostic tool.

2003 VW Jetta 1.8T Shuts off


The EPC ( Electronic Power Control) light comes on because there is an problem with the engine. I would take it to your local dealer or part store and have them hook a scan tool up to it and read the codes. This will give you a code or codes that identify what is wrong with your engine. The part store does not charge for this service, the dealer does. If you have a mechanic that you trust, I would take it to them. Hope this helps.
