Happened after battery dying for being in the car charging my phone
My car has 130000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
Hi there. The EPC (Electronic Power Control) light is just a way to tell you that there is a problem with the drive by wire system. The issue could be the throttle pedal position sensor not registering to the computer (ECM). You can reset the sensor with the following steps:
That will reset the sensor and you can start the vehicle and see if the light goes out. If the light is still on, then I recommend replacing the throttle pedal position sensor. If you need further assistance with your EPC light, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
