Was there any description with the code? I would get it VAG-COM scanned at the nearest VW mechanic because especially with EPC they give a somewhat detailed description of what the problem is.

Yeah that's definitely something you're gonna have to take up with a garage. I wouldn't recommend doing it yourself.

ya for sure. i mean for me when the epc was going off and my check engine light was on, it was my mafs. i had to buy a new one. buying a new one changed everything back to normal. at the time with those two lights it could have been the mafs or the throttle body needin to be cleaned. good luck man! i hope things work out for ya
