EPC Light 2005 Volkswagen Touareg

Okay so I was driving just a bit ago and I noticed that my car felt like it was losing power. I left off the brake and as soon as I did that I noticed it was slowing down and then I pressed the gas and it started to go as normal. About 5 minutes later the "EPC" light came on, I turned the car off and back on, it went off and then low and behold it's back on again. What should I do??

EPC light went on on me vw 2006 touareg

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.

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.

the esp light is caused by failure of the brake light switch in most models. check your brake light operation and replace the switch if the brake lights have failed. the switch is found in the footwell above the brake pedal
