SOURCE: 2002 VW Jetta won't start

Check the battery out put to see if it is at least 12.25 volts(may need to have it load checked).If the battery checks good,remove battery cables and clean them real shiney,also the battery terminals,and replace them back on the battery,WARNING,DO NOT DISCONNET THE BATTERY WITHOUT PLUGING A 12 VOLT POWER SOURSE INTO THE CIGARET LIGHTER PLUG,OR EQUAL.If you do not plug in a power sourse to the car,the computer will loose all it`s memory,and will have to go to the dealer to be reflashed.

SOURCE: epc light came on and now car wont start, what do I do?

I had this same problem on my 2001 Beetle. The EPC light refers to the Electronic Pedal Control that disengages the shift lock when you depress the brake. On the beetle there was a recall on this part for replacement and it is recommended that you take it to a dealer for free replacement. If you cannot get to a dealer, the part is about $10 - $20 at pep boys (or any other parts store).

The trick to getting the EPC to engage correctly if you cannot get the car going is to go under the drivers side in front the brake pedal arm where the sensor is located (this is a plastic or metal plunger that the pedal rests against and is easy to spot) and depress the brake with one hand and the sensor with the other and release quickly. It may take a few times, but this should disengage the EPC lock. You should hear an audible "thunk" which will indicate that it worked.

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.

EPC LIGHT WONT STOP in my 02 Jetta


When was the last time you changed your Air filter( A dirty filter can put MAF sensor out of range). How about the fuel filter (Fuel starvation). These filters should be changed every 30,000 miles . It is normal for all of the dash lights to come on if the engine stops running. Is the Jetta a Diesel or Gas. Perform The OBDII scan again to see if current faults are present. Do the cheapest fixes first. Also check oil often. The low oil sensor will trigger engine shut down if more than 1 quart low

Vw passat epc light on

It sounds as if your vehicle may have severe water damage to the engine. The engine sensors on the golf are suseptable to water damage and can result in epc light that you are seeing on your dash, or so i was told by VW. I replaced all the sensors, alternator and the computer on my original engine, but this action didnt fix the problem. So i bit the bullet and replaced the engine, and haven't had a problem since. If you do the labor yourself it can be done as cheap as $4000. I hope this helps mate.

good luck

Epc light is shown on dash board


Have you check to see if you have pressed your EPC button mistake? If not My tire pressure was low on my 04 beetle covt. on my drivers side rear. THis caused my EPC light to come on and the EPC to engage. But because of the location of the EPC button it is really easy to hit it by mistake I would check that 1st.
