SOURCE: 2004 Volkswagen Pointer After servicing the

Just had a similar problem. Took my 2003 Volkswagen Jetta 2.0l auto in for an oil change. They also checked the air filter. When finished, I started it up and the EPC and MIL (aka CEL, check engine light) lamps came on.

Figured it was just a glich caused by draining/refilling the oil and that it would reset itself by the next day. No luck. So, after checking to make sure the gas cap was tight, I poked my head under the hood. Made sure the oil fill cap was on tight. They also checked the engine air filter so I took a look over there. Low and behold, the ding-a-ling at the shop neglected to reconnect the MAF sensor cable. That is the electronic connector on the air intake hose between the engine and the air filter box.

Plugged that back in and bing, EPC light went out. MIL still on, but if I recall, after a "major" event, the MIL won't go out until it is reset. Taking it back to the shop to have the code cleared.

So, long story short, if you get an EPC and MIL, first check to make sure that the MAF is properly connected.

SOURCE: The EPC light on my Dashboard is showing

The EPC light is connected to a pressure sensor in the block. Open the oil filler cap, release the pressure (and check your oil while you're at it). If you don't have a real problem, the light should go out.

EPC = Engine Power Control it's the engine control module yellow warning light.
You need access and erase the EPC memory by DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to reset the EPC, and turn off the EPC yellow light.

SOURCE: what is the epc light

You have an engine code for something. Take it into a local parts store and most of them will scan for free... otherwise look online or on ebay and you can find scanners for cheap. VW's get a lot of lights it seems because everything is really regulated.

What does letters EPC mean when it lights up on dashboard

Usually EPC, means electronic pressure control. This is a solenoid inside the transmission. Very common replacement part. Being it is a VW, it could be some thing else. Have the codes read and repost.

My dashboard and rear lights don't work

Assuming this has the V6, the 15A PARK LPS fuse in the underhood fuse block feeds constant power to the auto park lamp relay. When the relay closes, 12V power passes through the 10A INST LPS fuse in the right instrument panel fuse block to the panel dimmer switch and then to the five instrument cluster lamps.

If by "rear lights" you mean everything in the rear lamp assemblies, power for the tail lights (running lights) starts at the 15A PARKLAMP fuse in the underhood junction block, passes through the automatic lamp control (ALC) relay and the right instrument panel junction block to the tail filament of the dual stop/tail lamp and the separate tail lamp on each side. The 12 V power for the stop lamps is protected by the 20A STOPLAMPS fuse in the left I/P junction block, passes through the stoplamp switch when brakes are applied, stop filament of the dual stop/tail lamps. That leaves the turn signals and the hazard lamps. Power for the turn signals originates at the 10A TURNLAMPS fuse in the left I/P junction block and is applied to the hazard switch. Switch output goes to the turn/headlamp/wiper switch for selection of left or right turn signals. That switch output goes to the turn lamp. Power for the hazard function begins at the 10A HAZRD LPS fuse in the left I/P junction box and goes to the hazard switch. Switch output is sent to the left I/P junction box to make the turn signals flash. That's it. Post a comment if you need more information.

Turn signals quit working, both ways, all at once

if turn signals light but do not flash,suspect turn signal flasher,located behind dashboard panel below steering column.if they aren't lighting check fuse,also below dash on drivers side.
