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

asked by on December 18, 2015

The EPC and ABS Lights are on.

ABS Light is on Inspection $79.99 - $89.99 Get a Quote

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.
