Maybe you’re alarmed that the EPC warning light on your dashboard started flashing during your Collegeville commute. Or maybe you’re just wondering, “What is an EPC light?”. Either way, the service department at Wynn Volkswagen is here to help. So, we’re going to talk about how to fix the EPC light and whether you should attempt a VW EPC light reset yourself.


What is the EPC Light?

“EPC” stands for Electric Power Control. When it flashes, it indicates there’s an issue with your throttle system or sensors that needs to be repaired. If it starts to flash, schedule an appointment with us so that we can take care of the issue.

How to Fix the EPC Light on a VW

The VW EPC light is not the real problem. So, rather than trying to figure out how to fix the EPC light on the VW car in question, it’s far better to fix the issue that is causing the EPC warning light to flash in the first place. That’s something that a trained technician is best suited to do.

What is the EPC Light Telling Me?

The EPC warning light is indicating that that one of the following issues need immediate attention:

  • Throttle pedal or throttle body issues
  • Cruise control trouble
  • Engine speed sensor error
  • Mass air flow sensor error
  • Issues with your brake light switch

Should I Attempt a VW EPC Light Reset?

Even if you had the special equipment needed to do it, a VW EPC light reset is best left to our technicians to do after they fix the problem that is causing the light to flash. Resetting the light would be pointless if the underlying issue isn’t resolved.
