2005 New Jetta and My EPC light

I bought this car about a month ago with 55,000 miles and immediately it started having problems. The Check engine light or exhaust light came on with the EPC light. During that time the car would stall-out at stop lights or when I wasn't giving it a lot of gas. Took it to the dealer and they replaced the throttle body, whatever that is. Got the car back and went for a trip only to find the EPC light coming back on along with the traction control light. The car hasn't stalled, but it has lost power, only gaining about thrity mph up hills. I fear the dealer is incompetent. Any suggestions or solutions?

I had this same exact problem a few months ago. My mechanic replaced the Crank Speed Sensor, reset my codes - and all was good again. Cost less than $100.

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.

The code on my car vw new jetta 2005 its a 2.5 the codes is reading on my car p0322 and code p3081 the reading was took when my epc light came on and my engine light on and i have a oil link i smell r


code p3081 refers to engine temperature too low===causes--allow engine to warm up---cooling system fault
I would check for a thermostat stuck open

code p0322 refers to crank shaft position (CKP) sensor/engine speed (RPM) sensor--no signal===causes--wiring---CKP/RPM sensor---ECM

EPC LIGHT WONT STOP in my 02 Jetta


When was the last time you changed your Air filter( A dirty filter can put MAF sensor out of range). How about the fuel filter (Fuel starvation). These filters should be changed every 30,000 miles . It is normal for all of the dash lights to come on if the engine stops running. Is the Jetta a Diesel or Gas. Perform The OBDII scan again to see if current faults are present. Do the cheapest fixes first. Also check oil often. The low oil sensor will trigger engine shut down if more than 1 quart low

I bought my 2005 sebring a year ago and it is due for smog check.I put 3,000 miles on the 2.7 litre engine in the last year and it now has 36,000 miles.A couple months ago the malfunction yellow light came...


the 2.7l has a sludge problem. This could cause the stalling and loss of power. There's a few fixes, the new water pump (which is part of the problem) doesn't dump coolant into the oil pan. Easy way to check is to simply drop the oil pan.
