Q: Need problem associated with EPC and ABS Lights fixed.

asked by on

The EPC and ABS Lights are on.

The EPC Light is for the electronic throttle body. You need to have a qualified technician check the codes on the computer to determine the problem. You may just have a loose vacuum hose connected to the intake. The ABS Light is for the automatic braking system. You should have a technician with an ABS scanner tool determine what is malfunctioning. Most of the time it is a faulty wheel speed sensor.
