Have you checked fuses yet ?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
All fuses checked. Replace brake light switch.
Expert:  vwtech0405 replied 6 months ago.
Did you also check the fuses on top of the battery the 3 green 30 amp fuses and the strip flat fuses between each cable in that fuse ox ??
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Yes. That was the first thing I checked as I had heard about main fuse block melt downs. Checked AC fuse on secondary fuse block inside car.
EPC dash Light is on, Red brake dash light is on. AC is kaput. Shrill noise like warning signal happens when I attempt to drive.
Expert:  vwtech0405 replied 6 months ago.
Ok we have issues in the past with a mini fuse pop and cause this issue in the left side of the dash fuse box but since you have stated they are all good then more then likely you have a issue with the Ac control head taking down the circuit remove it and unplug it and see if some of the issues are fixed . I hope this helps please don't forget to provide feedback/rating for the help thank you

Which fuse in the left side fuse box would be the culprit? I mainly just pulled out fuses to see if they were blown and put them back in.Perhaps brand new fuses or a de-ox spray in the link
