EPC light is not coming on when I turn on the ignition in my 2006 Jetta

\015 Repairman says over the phone that this is the reason my car is not starting. None of the fuses say EPC. How do I troubleshoot this?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 22-01-2018

Answers :

Well the EPC light is for electronic power or pedal control, which refers to the gas pedal and throttle body. The light can come on for a number of reasons including issues with the fly-by-wire gas pedal, throttle body, cruise control, brake light switch, and others.
Not coming on when you turn the key on for a test could be a blown fuse for the computer since the EPC light is not on a fuse. You may have to check them all to make sure. Of course the bulb could be out too.

I have a 2005 (MKIV) Jetta 1.8T Automatic, and stalled suddenly while waiting for a traffic light to change. I turned the ignition on and off a couple times to get it running again, and after getting it re-started, the EPC indicator light came on. I arrived to my destination and when I started the car EPC indicator light was off and everything was normal. This has happened like three times before, and always at idle or coming to a stop. Any idea of what is going on??

I have a 2002 VW Jetta. 2.0L automatic. When I try starting it, all of the dash lights come on as usual but it will not turn over. I checked the fuses, good. Checked the battery, good.

As I am driving all of the car's gauges pop off and on intermittenly. The speedometer bounces the gas gauge goes from full to empty. The caution lights flicker. At times while driving the car ignition kills. When I initially turn the car on the speedometer gauge goes from 0 to 120 and then back to 0. Sometimes the Low Oil light comes on when I know the levels are where they should be. About 5 months ago I purchase another battery hoping that this would fix the problem Even though Autozone

I have a 96 VW Jetta. Last night I tried to unlock the car with the key. The key would turn in the lock but the automatic locks did not disengage. A friend ran a wire down inside the door and pulled the lock up. This set off the alarm. Now the when the key is in the ignition and I try to start it, the dash lights come on but the car makes no effort to turn over. The hazard lights also begin flashing. Jumping the battery made no difference. I don't know what I need to do to start my car.

When I turn my ignition nothing happens, no sound or lights come on. The lights come on shortly after I take the key out of the ignition and the only way to get them to shut off is to step on the brake. Then when I release the brake they go on again but the keys aren't in the ignition. 5 days ago my car wouldn't turn over so I replaced the fuel filter and batttery and filled the tank and it worked perfectly until yesterday. I have no idea what is wrong with my 03 chevy cavalier, please help.

My heater switch lights stay on in my 1995 honda civic even when the ignition is turned off. I thought it might be the heater switch because one of the times I turned the ignition off the heater as well as the lights (the ones on the buttons that control where the air flow goes and comes from) stayed on.
