03 1.8T EPC warning light after jump start - gmacdon
Hi,

I have an Audi A3 1.8T 03 which has been largely trouble free.

It had a fault with the factory-sit radio which was draining the battery so I had that fixed under extended warranty but 2 weeks later the battery went flat so i had the AA jump start it and now the radio is completely dead (sure that'll be covered under parts guarantee) but the EPC warning light has come on and stayed on.

The rest of the car seems fine, no loss of power etc.

Would the radio fault cause the EPC warning light?

Best regards,
Gordon

No; the EPC light is, supposedly, for a fault with the fly-by-wire throttle system.

Get the codes read to determine the exact fault.
