    2007 Rabbit EPC light came on

    Started the car up yesterday afternoon to go home and the EPC light came on. I didn't do anything out of the ordinary when I started it up. It started up okay and it drove home okay. I drove it to work this morning, light was still on and the car seemed to run fine. So what is this light for?

    Means there is a malfunction in your engine or related sensor. You need to have it scanned and diagnosed.

    By a VW shop or could I swing by Autozone, O'Reilys? Is this a common problem?

    Depends. Many aftermarket scanners will not read sporadic faults, only active ones. So if a fault happened 500 times but NOT the day the car is scanned, no faults will show up. Try autozone and see if anything shows up. Of course your best bet is to have a dealer check it out.

    Reading codes isn't the magic bullet. Diagnosing a vehicle properly without guessing is the proper way.
