The EPC light has to do definitions. One has to do with the tire pressure monitoring system. The other is the transmission line pressure control. I wish you could give me more information but to take a stab at this problem I will guess that your problem has to do with the brake-light switch (on the brake-pedal). Sounds like the switch is stuck on or defective and the TCC (torque converter clutch) Is getting a constant signal to disengage. Thus that's why you can shift without using the brake-pedal. Good luck.
Let me know how your making out.

Epc light and mil light on vw touareg


Hi there:
If the EPC light or check engine light is on it will show up with a generic OBD2 scanner, I suggest visit some Autozone or Autoshop with OBD Scanner Reader to know exactly what fault code is stored there.

We could give you a better idea what's wrong once you can give me a fault code number.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

I have 2004 VW Touareg and my epc light is on. My car speeds up and slows down and speeds up on its own. What is the problem?


First of all you need to access the Engine Control Module (ECM) using suitable diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC's memored. DTC = Diagnostic Trouble Code. Then you will bu full informed about the root cause of the problem, and you will be able to repair & replace bad pieces and reset the ECM. Then the EPC (Electronic Pedal Control) yellow light will turn OFF.

Hi there?
The EPC lights may come on if the brake light switch is not working, check and make sure the brake lights work, if not then you'll need to replace the brake light switch.

ETC light is on, engine has problems starting.


The EPC (Electronic Pedal Control) is the "fly by wire" system that controls the throttle, it took the place of the cable that went from the gas pedal to the throttle body on VW. If this light is on and there is also a P0102, MAF (Mass Air Flow) related code stored in the vehicle's computer, the EPC may be caused indirectly from a faulty MAF. If the EPC is on and there is no other codes stored, it could be a faulty electronic throttle body or need to be re-programmed. The vehicle's computer must recognoze the throttle body so when replacing it with new or used it will need to be programmed at the dealer. Recently I replaced a MAF (a common problem on VW's) on a VW Golf and when I cleared the code the EPC went off as well.

Hi, i recently replaced both sides of the front suspension upper control arms for my 2006 VW Touareg 3.2 V6 which has air suspension. After collecting it from the repair shop and driving for about 10 mins,...


I would return to the repair shop and get them to plug into the OBD and check for fault codes that correspond to suspension, chances are this could be related to previous repair. But may just need the fault codes deleting

2002 VW Polo - EPC Light and Loss of Power


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!

EPC Light on , VW dies when stopping


Tell him to clean the electrical connector at the throttle body with 90% rubbing alcohol. He may want to use a nylon brush on the contact pins while cleaning. I'm pretty sure the car needs a throttle adaptation performed also. Find a shop with a Vag Com scanner, they can do it for you.

Check the engine codes, and replace or repair the faulty sensor (most likely the MAF sensor).
