Work With a VW Service Technician to Diagnose EPC Dashboard Warning Light
The EPC warning light indicates a problem with the electronic power control (EPC) systems onboard the Volkswagen. These problems are critical as these systems power important systems such as stability control, cruise control, and other engine management functions.
You’ll likely also see additional warning lights indicated along with the EPC light due to the similarity between systems and the crucial nature of the EPC function. It’s also likely that the EPC warning will be noticed in tandem with disabled vehicle functions. It’s critical to resolve this issue as soon as possible, and Volkswagen Santa Monica is here to help.
What to Do about an EPC Warning Light and Next Steps
If you see your Electronic Power Control warning light lit up, it’s time to pay close attention to the problem. Your vehicle will require immediate servicing by trained technicians and should not be driven anywhere except to our dealership or to your preferred service center. Fixing the issue requires a diagnostics protocol that experienced technicians can complete for you and potential hardware repairs of the affected systems.
Please note that whether or not it is safe to drive with the EPC light on is ultimately up to you and your comfort with driving with a warning light. In some cases, it may not be possible to continue driving and your vehicle will need to be towed to a repair center. If in doubt, refer to your owner’s manual for more information about this warning light.
