EPC stands for Electronic Power Control - part of the dreaded auto computers.

My 1st suggestion would be to use a ODB II - analyser and read any codes in there. If you don't have one handy or with a friend, go down to a local friendly auto shop ie Checker and ask to borrow one of there's for a few moments.

Write down any codes and look up on the net. Reset any codes on the computer while you are there.

A stop gap method is to disconnect the battery on the car for 10 minutes and hook up again. This forces the computer system to reboot - that may cure the problem also.

WHAT DOES EPC STAND FOR ?


"Engineering, Procurement, and Construction" (EPC) is a particular form of contracting arrangement used in some industries where the EPC Contractor is made responsible for all the activities from design, procurement, construction, to commissioning and handover of the project to the End-User or Owner.

In case of cars:
The EPC indicator is a standard in Volkswagen and Audi models. These vehicles have drive-by-wire systems that are computer-controlled. When a fault exists with the throttle pedal, throttle body, traction control and cruise control, the EPC warning light illuminates. In many instances, the vehicle's throttle may be limited when this light is illuminated in order to protect the engine. Often, there is just enough power enough to get the vehicle to a service facility for repairs.

I Have a 2004 Polo Classic 1.6 Petrol. The EPC light came on on the dashboard and the brake lights stopped working. I replaced the brake light switch and the problem still there, I disconnected and...


The EPC (electronic powertrain control) system deals solely with monitoring the electronic accelerator pedal and moving the throttle body to match positions. Most likely, there is a problem with the accelerator pedal. However this does not explain the brake light situation......sometimes it is due to aftermarket electrical modifications that are added that interfere with the factory wiring and ecu......i would be looking in that dirrection

The EPC light on my Dashboard is showing


The EPC light is connected to a pressure sensor in the block. Open the oil filler cap, release the pressure (and check your oil while you're at it). If you don't have a real problem, the light should go out.
