Question about Cars & Trucks
Rather than guess at what could be an expensive repair...i would very strongly suggest you get your car to a local trusted garage who can use Diagnostic equipment to determine the exact fault.
Please do not guess or just fit parts....get it tested and verified by a Pro first.....it will save you a fortune in the long run.

Electronic Power Control is what epc means. this could mean a brake light or a bad brake light switch check your lights. If that is fine you must have it check out by a tech

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.

Tell him to clean the electrical connector at the throttle body with 90% rubbing alcohol. He may want to use a nylon brush on the contact pins while cleaning. I'm pretty sure the car needs a throttle adaptation performed also. Find a shop with a Vag Com scanner, they can do it for you.

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.
