2009 jetta city with powerloss and EPC light when headlights on

Took it to the dealership and they said it was the break light switch, so they replaced it . had to take it back twice due to faulty break switch at replacement. car now has a sluggish loss of power when the headlights are turned on followed by EPC light coming on. seems to be ok when the headlights are not turned on. The dealership does not seem to know what's causing it and we do not what to pay for anymore hours of wasted time on it. anyone know how this problem can be fixed ??

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 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.
