You will have to take it back to vw if its still under warranty, if not u need to find a garage that has diagnostic equipment and they will tell you what the fault is.

What would make my 2002 VW Passat just shut off when sitting in park?


Hi there:You will need to have diagnostic codes checked which can be done for free at parts store.

We have seen where the vehicle will run rough and have poor throttle response because the wiring right at the throttle body is bad because the wire terminals are loose right at the connector the first thing you will need to do is check the wiring and check the trouble codes stored in the engine control module to see if you have trouble body codes this needs to be the next step .

EPC stands for Electronic Power Control. This is the drive by wire throttle system used in Audi and VW gasoline models. Here is a list of some of the related components:
- Throttle Position (TP) Sensor G79
- Sender 2 for Accelerator Pedal Position G185
- Throttle Valve Control Module J338
- Angle Sensor 1 for Throttle Drive G187
- Angle Sensor 2 for Throttle Drive G188
- Brake Light Switch F
- Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensor G70

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Vw passat epc light on


the belt slips, and the engine goes into limp mode, and the epc light will come on- to protect itslef until its fixed. Once its fixed...you may have to decode her up to 9 times to get it to start...I did. Ive done 5 timing belt changes on these blasted cars and every time it slips a tooth and the engine cuts itself off with epc, i have to decode it at least 8 times. good luck. and to the idiot who said gas cap..get a life .

Epc light is ON vw passat 2000


Needs to be put on a scan tool, It sounds like a vaccum leak giving an eronic reading on the mass air flow sensor or a problem with your valve body to the transmission, may need cleaning or replaced..

The ingnition won`t start, how dow I by pass the EPC and start, the car was running fine but started not switching, when turning the key nothing happens, what is the EPC for? and how do I fix it with out...


Your EPC stands for "Electronic Power Control" and without it (bypassing it, as you stated), you will not be going anywhere in your car. The car MUST have the EPC on/enabled to run, as I have been told. The VW Passat does not have a throttle cable... it is controlled electronically. The EPC light means something is wrong in the drive-by-wire path, the "gas pedal" potentiometers or the electric motor-controlled throttle body, etc. You will need to take it to a mechanic/repair shop that is knowledgable in foreign automobiles (especially VW's) and has the appropriate tools and equipment to read any "codes" being kicked out by the computer.

I have a 2001 New Passat with the EPC light coming on randomly and it will idle high but next time I start the car it goes away. I think you will have to take it in to the dealer.

My 2000 vw passat starts but keeps stalling


If it back fired it is possible the timing jump a tooth. If so, you'll have to have the timing sprockets placed back into the proper spots. Have your mechanic do this if it's needed. But in any case have the timing check first.

My epc light keeps coming on and then one day when I was driving a big red light came on that said stop


I have a 2002 Passat, 1.8L Turbo. I had a problem where my EPC light kept coming on, and I would have a lot of trouble starting my car in hot weather. The EPC light stands for Electronic Pedal Control. When you press on the gas/brake, the pedal doesn't pull a wire like in the past, it's all done by computers. The sensor is saying that somewhere along the path from the pedal, to the brake that something is acting up.

I took my car into the VW dealer nearby and they said the sensor was going bad, and that's why the light was coming on. They informed me that once the sensor went bad, my car would stall, and likely not start again until replaced. I decided to have it replaced (about $250), and I haven't had a problem since.
