Check if your wires are on TIGHTLY on the battery, if one loses a touch, your car will shut off. If you go over a tiny bump, or turn to one side or another, they could disconnect, causing your car to lose a + or a - cable connection. Which would very well make your car shut off. Also, check for any corrosion on the battery terminals. Good luck.

Hi there:You will need to have diagnostic codes checked which can be done for free at parts store.
We have seen where the vehicle will run rough and have poor throttle response because the wiring right at the throttle body is bad because the wire terminals are loose right at the connector the first thing you will need to do is check the wiring and check the trouble codes stored in the engine control module to see if you have trouble body codes this needs to be the next step .
EPC stands for Electronic Power Control. This is the drive by wire throttle system used in Audi and VW gasoline models. Here is a list of some of the related components:
- Throttle Position (TP) Sensor G79
- Sender 2 for Accelerator Pedal Position G185
- Throttle Valve Control Module J338
- Angle Sensor 1 for Throttle Drive G187
- Angle Sensor 2 for Throttle Drive G188
- Brake Light Switch F
- Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensor G70
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.
Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.
