Question about 2002 Volkswagen Golf
2002 VW Polo - Experiencing continually issues with the EPC light. VW garage explained it was wiring fault with the pedal and paid for repair with no resolution to issue. Secondly we took to a local mechanic and they replaced the map sensor. The vehicle weekly looses power and the epc comes on? It has become extremely unreliable car. Any advice would be appreciated greatly.
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!
