    EPC is Electronic Performance Control and ESP is Electronic Stability Program, both don’t actually exist as hardware, they are programs within the engine and ABS ECU’s respectively.

    It does sound like a power supply issue but could be difficult to track down so you may need a VAG specialist to investigate and it could take some time....

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Annoyingly its going in for a new rear bumper / spray at the end of the month due to it being cracked a few months back. If this issue is going to take ages to diagnose with lots of going to and from I might look at PX at a VW dealer.

    Shame as it’s mint condition, with only 30k on the clock.
