I am having the same problem on my Audi A4 2004 FSI, lose power whilst driving at speed with the EPC light coming on. Looks like a design fault of some kind with Audi petrol engins, have read a few forums about this but no clear straight answer. Check the link below:

I have a audi a3 2005 model the epc light comes on and power loss please help


Unless you have a scan tool or have a friend that has one. You will need to send it in for diagnostics. A code reader may provide some information but will not show live data. The EPC warning light, also known as the Electronic Power Control warning light. The PCM has identified a fault with your Volkswagen's throttle system. The throttle pedal, throttle body, traction control, cruise control or wiring could be to blame.

I have audi 2001 1.8 non turbo a3 EPC light goes on and off


That sounds like a bad connection. Check all connections for the EPC system from the accelerator pedal TPS to the throttle body itself. If that fails you could have a wire in the loom that is broken and makes inertmitent contacts.

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.

Just bought a 2003 Audi A3, the engine light has come on, any idea what this could be for?


First of all you need to access the Engine Control Module (ECM) using suitable diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC's memored. DTC = Diagnostic Trouble Code. Then you will bu full informed about the root cause of the problem, and you will be able to repair & replace bad pieces and reset the ECM. Then the engine light & EPC (Electronic Pedal Control) yellow light will turn OFF.

Hi. I have a 2004 Audi A3. PAst number of weeks a light Emission Control System and EPC light come on intermittantly. Sometimes when out for a journey, the car can cut out when stopped at lights and...


coolant temp sensor or airline.

I had the same problem, replaced the coolant temp sensor for £15 and reset the warning light. 2004 1.6 SE. I'll never go back to Audi for a service. They might as well wear balaclavas.

I still have some problems with the idling but I can live with it (or until I know the real reason) - After £100 diagnostic and me suggesting to them what it might be they said they could do nothing. Surely by the number of comments about the same problem it must be a known fault!
