Hi guys, my 1st post here
I'm new to cars so apologies if I come off as a newbie
My car: VW Golf IV 1.6S, year 2000, manual 4dr.
Ok, my EPC warning light is always coming on. It used to come on every now and then but now it seems more permanent. I don't really notice any major differences with the driving, except the gas pedal feels 'less smooth' when it's on (this could be my imagination).
The weird thing is the light will go off when I fill up with petrol and then come on when the tank is nearing empty again. This isn't always the case (sometime I fuel up and EPC stays on ) but it has happened a few times, so not sure if there is a relation.
Can anyone suggest any ideas, or experienced anything similar. I have a fault with the alarm/central locking that I will detail if anyone thinks it's relevant. It sucks cos I just lost my job and I don't have money to get diagnostics test for the time being. Should I stop driving it 'til then?
Thanks for any help.
