How much is a replacement DBS?

What is the engine control module

Hello, this afternoon when I was stopped waiting for the garage door to open, I saw a warning light up on the dashboard, some yellow letters (EPC) that remained on until the car was turned off.

Sometimes what it indicates is a sporadic or minor fault, from the experience I have with another VW once it came on, to stop the car and start it did not appear again, but it was recorded and it turned out to be a brake pedal switch that had a double function, because one of them stopped working, when he touched revision changed it and ready.

What I want to get to? well, when this fault comes out we have to look for where it may be originating, if the engine is bad it will be in the engine part, if the engine is good it will be in the electrical part, if it is in the engine part let’s check that there are no coil connectors that are sulfated, dirty spark plug wires clean with a brush all the spark plug connectors of coils, etc..

If it is in the electrical system try to remember what was the last failure and proceed to verify if everything is in order, finally clean the battery contacts with baking soda and hot water, obviously with the battery disconnected.

I felt sorry because it never failed me, so I took it to 3 mechanics workshops where all told me it had to do with the taillights (all worked without problem, but still we changed the bulbs) and still the problem reappeared.

Second mechanic to scan it said that it marked a cylinder failure, washed the throttle body and checked the lights again, the EPC indicator was removed but in the afternoon it came back on again.

It is clear that none of us likes to go to the workshop, especially when it comes to complex and costly breakdowns that, in addition to leaving us without a car for a few weeks, will cost us a large sum of money. The key to avoid going to the workshop is proper maintenance, but even so no one is exempt from suffering a serious breakdown in your vehicle. Learn to detect them in time!

The most serious breakdowns your car can sufferWe will start with the engine block breakdown. Its repair involves about 17 hours of labor and a cost probably higher than 1,600 euros, and can be caused by an improper change of oil or coolant, or by strong accelerations with the engine cold. If it cannot be repaired and has to be replaced by a second-hand engine, the breakdown may exceed 3,000 euros.

How much does it cost to fix the EPC

Possibly I already found the problem, thanks to the opinion of several people gave me several options to check the car for the EPC failure and one of which has not failed me again is this one:

I also have the problem that when I go in gear and I want to accelerate and no longer responds the accelerator pedal until I turn off the car and turn it back on. Also my reverse lights don’t turn on… and they don’t know why….

I was told that it is the failure of the sensor but it turns out that where I attended they tell me that this repair is expensive and they quote me 3850 for the repair, I hope someone can guide me or support me as soon as possible because it was too expensive and I would not want them to take advantage of seeing a single woman.

From what I have read about the EPC it has always been related to the stop lights or some other simple electrical thing. As alexo told you in his case it was the stop lights, in the following link (Seat belongs to the VW family) the guy had a similar problem, I share with you the paragraph and the link…
