Question about Cars & Trucks
Hi the Epc light came on in my 2001 beetle. the engine seems to reving quickly and when i was driving on the 401 it just started to get slower and slower and I had to pull over for when I pushed the gas paddle nothing happened. on the shoulder of the 401 I turned car off and then tried starting it back up. It started back off and tried to drive it.... It drove on but it kept happening and I eventually just turned around and came back home...

Electronic Power Control is what epc means. this could mean a brake light or a bad brake light switch check your lights. If that is fine you must have it check out by a tech

Have you checked your belts? A piece of belt may have come off and been slapping under your hood, and then fell off completely. While it was slapping, your computer would have detected the slow down of pulleys etc. and caused your engine light to come on. Then when the piece broke off, everything would be back to normal. Let me know!

It sounds like your alternator is not charging. You may want to have it tested and replace/rebuild it if necessary. Many times the problem is that the brushes are worn in the alternator and it stops charging correctly. The brushes are usually attached to the voltage regulator and are replaceable if you have the parts and skill. You can also replace the voltage regulator/brush assembly as a unit.
Many parts stores will test your alternator for free.
