asked by on

I was driving down the road and I lost complete throttle responce and my epc light came on. When I put it in drive and let off of break it revs up I press break it revs down just like my break is my gas. I don't understand plz help thank to u

As you may know, the EPC light stands for "Electronic Power Control" which is a general fault indicator signaling that something has been detected that is abnormal relating to the traction control, the throttle control, the cruise control or the throttle body. I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your location to diagnose your symptoms to properly determine what may be causing this light to come on.
