The same thing just happened to me this week and I could not get the car out of park! Turns out, the brake fluid was empty. Once we filled it up, the light went off and problem solved! 2000 VW GSX Beetle.

How to clear a epc light from golf 5 fsi engine

If U don`t have VAGcom to read and erase the errors try first the brake switch if its ok (sometimes the brake lights remain turned on even if the brake pedal is released and this cause the epc light on).
If you see a engine speed decrease when epc turns on the error could be from admision *(air intake) pressure sensor . You can disconnect your battery minus*(ground) for 10 or more minutes to turn off the epc light but if you don`t resolve the problem epc will turn on again when U start the engine. My advice is to find a Diagnose cable and read the error to know exactly what is the problem

I have a 2003vw jetta the epc light is on and the will not come out of park nor the stop lights come on,I have already changed the brake switch and still won't work..

EPC light should have nothing to do with the shift interlock,(EPC is traction control) should be a small cap or plug on the console, near the shifter that has the interlock disengage button,usually done with a key,check shift interlock in the owners manual.

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 = Engine Power Control it's the engine control module yellow warning light.
You need access and erase the EPC memory by DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to reset the EPC, and turn off the EPC yellow light.

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.
