How to fix limp mode


The ABS system may cause a vehicle to go into limp mode if it is defective. Most times that will happen if your ABS light is lit up on your dash board!

Epc light in a 2003 Turbo-S Volkswagen beetle turned on, shut off. Next day car wouldn't turn over. How do I fix this from happening and start the car?


check battery volts should be 12.6 volts.if not battery dead.have battery charged and test if battery can be charged alternator faulty.if battery dead cant be charged replace battery.and clean battery cables if EPC warning light still flash have vechicle code scan for faulty accelerator control system or mass air flow sensor.to get vechicle started after replacing battery just turn ignition switch to the on position for 30 seconds then turn off ignition switch then start engine.

Epc light came on


the chances are your brake light switch is faulty.the cruise control relies on one side of the switch.
the epc light will come on for this code but will need to be reset through diagnostics port.
hope this helps.
you can also check for codes through the diag port for exact diagnostics.

My epc light came on and i lost power


I am having the same problem with my beetle, does another triangular light come on at the same time?

I'll be watching to see how this gets answered. My car is in the shop now and other than EPC meaning the Electronic Powertrain Control, the mechs can't help me because they can't catch it with the light on to get the codes.

Today the check engine came on along with the EPC, so tomorrow I hope to have an answer. I'll be sure to let you know.

Epc on


The EPC light is the Electronic pedal control. The mass air meter, brake switch, the throttle body, the gas pedal, wiring, and the computer all are tied to the EPC light. If you had a EPC or the engine light on then there is a fault. This can cause the computer to enter a limp mode or the improper signal is sent from the accelerator which manifests itself as poor performance. There have been some recalls on this so I would visit your local VW dealer.
