Brake light stays on with beeping sound


Check & replace if necessary the brake pedal switch placed above pedals on the support.

The brake pedal switch on a 2001 VW Beetle is placed above pedals on the support.

1. Remove the cover panel above the driver's side foot well...

2. Locate old switch, push in brake pedal, and twist switch body to remove...

3. Unplug 4 pin connector from old switch and plug into new switch (it only goes one way...don't force it!). Insert new switch into frame and depress brake petal. You should turn it until it locks into place and is positioned like the original.

4. Start Bug. Press the brake pedal once or twice and the EPC light should go out ...

5. If it looks like that... great! Replace the cover over the foot well and you are done! If not, check the 4 pin connection and make sure it is fully seated in the switch. Also check to see if you can hear the switch engage when you press the brake pedal ... if not, you will need to remove the switch and adjust the push rod. The rod will move in and out for adjustment. Check to see if the brake lights come on when you press the brake pedal as well!

The brake light bulbs on my 2003 beetle 1.9tdi are fine but wont come on when the pedal is pressed. If i remove the offside bulb and put it back, it comes on until the ignition is turned over then goes out...


There's a brake light switch down on the top of your brake pedal. This switch actuates when you step on the pedal. If it goes bad you have brake lights all the time, or not at all.

Here's some instructions and photos (the instructions may be ridiculously offensive to some)

How do I fix my epc on my 2002 vw beetle?


There's several things it could be...MAF sensor, brake switch, throttle body, faulty wiring, ECM or accelerator pedal. Any one of these can cause it. Need more detail on the problem.

What does the EPC light mean when it comes on while your driving?


The EPC is the Electronic Pedal Control. Usually it is a bad brake switch. Which mounts above the brake pedal.

Epc on


The EPC light is the Electronic pedal control. The mass air meter, brake switch, the throttle body, the gas pedal, wiring, and the computer all are tied to the EPC light. If you had a EPC or the engine light on then there is a fault. This can cause the computer to enter a limp mode or the improper signal is sent from the accelerator which manifests itself as poor performance. There have been some recalls on this so I would visit your local VW dealer.

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.
