What does EPC light mean on the dashboard


Probably 'Electronic Power Control'. Is your car a VW?
It's basically a sensor problem telling you that something is amiss. There's many sensors in the engine and also ABS. One of the sensors is indicating there's a fault on that particular system.

If the engine seems to be on reduced power it could be a throttle problem. Also check your brake light switch.

Year make and model ??
I would have the engine computer checked for trouble codes first.
When there is an engine problem, the other warning lights will come on because those systems use the engine to function.

EPC LIGHT WONT STOP in my 02 Jetta


When was the last time you changed your Air filter( A dirty filter can put MAF sensor out of range). How about the fuel filter (Fuel starvation). These filters should be changed every 30,000 miles . It is normal for all of the dash lights to come on if the engine stops running. Is the Jetta a Diesel or Gas. Perform The OBDII scan again to see if current faults are present. Do the cheapest fixes first. Also check oil often. The low oil sensor will trigger engine shut down if more than 1 quart low

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 light on


EPC means Electronic Power Control.

When this light comes on, yopu could have such a sudden power loss.

However, before visiting a workshop for help, do the following basic checks:

No air leak into the intake system.

Ensure that all the electrical socket in the engine management system are well fitted, no loose contacts.

This light can be caused throttle valve malfunction, MAF, brake lights, EVAP , 02 sensor, secondary air pump.

I suggest you visit a competent dealer or independent shop for help. They will scan the EPC and run 'Throttle Body Adaption'. and diagnos the problem. Ask for a garage with a 'Ross Tech VAG-COM' or a ' VW diagnostics scanner.'

EPC: Electronic Power Control

The ME7 engine management system uses electronic controls to operate the throttle valve rather than the usual braided cable. Pedal resistance and operation matches cable designs so that the operator is unlikely to differentiate. In an event of a failure with either one of the accelerator pedal position sensor (G79 or G185), the other sensor signal would be used in a limited capacity with functions such as cruise control deactivated. If both sensors malfunction, the ECM will limit engine speed to proximately 1200 rpm.

Now as to your question regarding error codes (DTC, SAE/VAG fault codes), as VW scan tool or similar needs to be hooked up to your vehicle in order to read which ones are stored in the ECU. This codes will tell you which area of the system came from and what problem they are related to. Only with a scanner makes all this possible, without it, it would be an expensive guessing game besides being very unreliable.

Car dies-hard to start


EPC= electronic pedal control it is a sensor and is located in front of the brake pedal . Depress brake with one hand ,the sensor with the other and release fast. this should disengauge the EPC lock listen for a thunk made by the EPC lock disengaging.

Go to auto zone. They will use a code reader to help you find exact component or components having errors. If its not the EPC.
it sounds like your mass air sensor or the throttle control sensor may be bad. Your gas and air may not be mixing properly thus causing your car to sputter, hesitate, and idle rough. It could be some other thinks like a bad plug or wire etc. Good Luck hope this helps. Please rate me if this helps thank you.

2000 new beetle 1.8Ltr Shuts off


The EPC (Electronic Pedal Control) is the "fly by wire" system that controls the throttle, it took the place of the cable that went from the gas pedal to the throttle body on VW. If this light is on and there is also a P0102, MAF (Mass Air Flow) related code stored in the vehicle's computer, the EPC may be caused indirectly from a faulty MAF. If the EPC is on and there is no other codes stored, it could be a faulty electronic throttle body or need to be re-programmed. The vehicle's computer must recognoze the throttle body so when replacing it with new or used it will need to be programmed at the dealer. Recently I replaced a MAF (a common problem on VW's) on a VW Golf and when I cleared the code the EPC went off as well.

Check the engine codes, and replace or repair the faulty sensor (most likely the MAF sensor).

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!
