    The other night I parked my 2000 1.8 sedan. Upon returning 45 minutes later, the car would not start, not even attempt to turn over. The EPC light came on as did the battery light (or Generator light as VW calls it) and CEL. The codes from VAG-COM are: 16684 - Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire...

    I was about 30 minutes into a drive this morning, on the highway, when I suddenly had a huge loss of power. I could barely keep the car (2001 1.8T AUG, 5-spd) at 60, and it was surging. I pulled off at the next exit, and when I downshifted, the tach dropped like a rock to 0. Fortunately, limp...

    So, last night I'm driving home from dinner, I go around a turn, and the EPC light comes on and stays on, as does the ASR light. Power is of course reduced as we go into a semi-limp home mode. I pull over to the side of the road, turn the car off. I turn the car back on, which it does quite...

    Hi everyone. I have experienced the same kind of behaviour twice in the last 2 weeks: Driving the car quite normally, even very normally with no high revs etc, the car suddenly when cornering (and stepping on gas again) stalls, gives EPC error and shuts off. When I restart the engine...

    I went to get in my car to take care of some stuff and my car wouldn't start. It was weird because when I turned the key all the lights in the dash turned on but it wouldn't start. I jumped it and the EPC light was still on. I turned it off then back on again hoping that would clear ir but no...
