SOURCE: VW POLO-52 plate EPC light on dash

My Polo had a similar problem and the brake light switch at the brake pedal was replaced. Then the computer was reset and the EPC light issue was resolved. It has something to do with the engine management, when sensing the light switsh being activated, retarding the power of the engine.

Hi,
It is a wiring fault, but they are looking on the wrong end. You will need to have a VW dealer "repin" the electrical connector at the throttle body. What this means is, the dealer will take apart the connector, cut off the old pins and crimp on new ones and reassemble the connector. This is a common problem on drive by wire VW's. The dealer has a bulletin on the problem and I don't know why they missed it. They will probably have to order the connector kit however. Good luck!

first look for a loose wire to the sensors (if you have a pit its easier to look from below),OR get a diagnostic check done at a dealer then decide if you can do the work or entrust them to do it.

How to replace parklight on polo classic 2006?


i would go to a local trusted garage and have the car scanned. see what dtc codes come up and discuss with the technician.
This may be a sytem glitch which can be cleared or it may indicate a fault.
sure beats guessing or getting a "pals" advise which could be totally wrong and cost you far more.

It may be an ECD warning light. It is trying to tell you something which can only really be identified by a dealer plugging in a laptop. My gut feeling is that you have a problem with your catalytic converter and that the engine is going in to emergency "get you home" mode to prevent it damaging itself.

Do get the fault checked professionally or you may damage your engine. If it is the converter your engine may be at risk of overheating and damaging the turbo and valve gear.

The light is on because of a code stored and will not reset till the code is cleared.The problem is ifsomething is damaged or a part has failed in the airbag system the light will come back on and you will need to make the repair in orderto keep the light off.

My vw polo keeps cutting out. when it slows down


try cleaning your battery terminals and tightening them. if that doesnt solve the problem your battery or alternator may be dying, some auto parts stores will do a charging system check for free that will tell you if one or the other is bad.

EPC light on my dashboard


Hi Shamiza, I have a Mercedes Diesel Motorhome and I use Bio Diesel, if I don't dilute the fuel with regular diesel a red light comes on EDC (Electronic Diesel Control) I then go into limp mode no more than3,500 rpm this is in case I do damage to high pressure pump. So I am presuming your vehicle is Petrol and possibly requires a service of sorts to the fuel system? Electronic Petrol Control??
It is just a thought and if it were me I would be knocking my Vw dealership for further advice.
I hope this helps
