Question about 2003 Volkswagen Passat
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.
