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

2003 Volkswagon Passat. The epc light comes on periodically. I was driving into a parking lot and the car died....the battery light came on. I just put in a new battery last week. Help


EPC refers to the drive by wire system. This system, generally speaking, encompasses the throttle pedal and its position sensors (it needs to know where your gassin' foot is) and the throttle body.

Most likely, the EPC light and its associated faults for this scenario are a symptom, not the problem. Meaning the actual root cause is causing the no-start/no crank issue AND fault codes related to the EPC system.

And the most likely root cause is an ignition switch, NOT the engine speed sensor.

With a bad engine speed sensor, the car will still crank all damn day (or until the battery dies) but the car won't start.

If you get a no-crank issue, and then it eventually starts either with or without an EPC light, again, the most likely problem is the ignition switch. Not the starter, not the battery (though the battery proper and the cable connections must be perfection itself to rule them out.) You can get these issues with a visually perfect but still faulty battery connection.

Epc light just came on 2003 jetta, what is epc?


Electronic Power Control. It controls the power to the wheels to keep them from skidding by keeping them at the same speed. It works best in the snow/ice/and mud. It gives the driver more control of the car in extreme situations. ABS keep you from skidding in a stop, and EPC keeps you from skidding under acceleration.
The car will drive like a normal car with out it. The problem can be found by using a VAG scan tool. It could be a wheel sensor, or the module.
Good Luck!

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.
