Could be dirty abs sensors attached to your brakes. I would clean them with brake parts or elecronical cleaner.
Other possibility is a faulty ABS system.

SOURCE: Hydrolic Air Pump Abs Light

Very common on these models is the fuse link in the top of the battery cover (40A) cracks. Costs a couple of pounds but indication on code reading is ABS pump failure.

New plugs and wire doesn't have anything to do with the EPC light. EPC relates to your electronic accelerator pedal. Have your car scanned for codes (DTC), then you wouldn't have to guess and replace functioning parts.

2005 VW Beetle. Engne light on and EPC light comes on with significantly reduced power.


Sounds like all those sensors are going to need replaced. Basically, they are all in charge of metering the air and fuel to the engine, so if they are malfunctioning, the car isn't going to run correctly.

I wnet out of gas on my VW Beetle 2001 last saturday. When I added gas to the tank, the car wouldn't start and the EPC light went on and I haven't been able to get it to start ever since. Would the EPC light have anything to do with the gas pump or anything related to running out of gas?

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).

VW Bora, The ABS alarm is on and the brake alarm is flashing,Brakes are working OK But not the ABS.Is it possible to reset the ABS unit or disable the alarm. Thanks Mike.


My EPC light magically appeared at 20K miles and the car squeaks like mad whenever it's moving. I don't notice any performance loss (engine-wise) in the car when the EPC light comes on but it won't let me switch gears from Park to R or D. I have an appointment next Friday to have it looked at. It's an automatic 2002 New BORA with JUST over 20K miles.
