Question about 1999 Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

My check enging and EPC light suddenly came on in my 1999 VW Jetta VR6. I was wondering if it was something that needs to be fixed soon or not? There seems to be nothing wrong with the car otherwise that I have noticed. Runs fine, etc.

Check engine lights mean that a sensor is not giving the computer a signal within an acceptable range. when this happens the car will go into "limp mode" which means it doesnt use most sensors and will guess what it should do. you can continue driving and cause no additional damage but you will use a little more gas than normal. You should get it fixed but it can be put off till you have the money and time to do it.

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.

My vw jetta vr6 1999 theabs light still on.the break pad and rottor was new.


abs light is on because there is a fault recorded in the abs system. a scan tool will be needed to get the recorded fault from the on board computor. It has nothing to do with the brake pads. It is usually an electrical problem.

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 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.

1999 vw jetta vr6 abs light stays on, but brakes work fine


the only way you will find this out is to have a diagnostic machine plugged in and the fault memory read to check what fault is logged, it could be anything from a ABS wheel speed sensor to a control module fault, to save money in the long run i would advise you get the fault memory read first. hope this helps

I cannot get a manuel for a vr6


Bentley Publishing is the ONLY place that publishes a Repair Manual for the VR6 Engines. I called them about the manual, the book is about $70. and the CDRom is about $99. The one I checked on was for my 1998 VW Jetta VR6, the manual they are sending me goes from 1993 to 1999 and has 4 and 6 cylinders!
