Hi .

The EDC is the Electronic diesel control .(fuel delivery system)

When this stays on then you need to check for malfunction codes in the fuel management system.

But first i suggest you check the fuel filter ,if not been changed when the repairs where done then go ahead and do this now/first.

Then check for codes you may have a accelerator pedal sensor issue or something in the line of fuel delivery .

Need further assistance with this issue then please get back to me with the reply box below .
After rating there is no further cost for any other question relating this issue .
Kind regards Greg
