Hello there I'm Wolfgang here to help. when the vehicle stalled and you tried to restart , in the dash, did the check engine light come on before cranking? please let me know

Yesterday EPT light came on when it died. Waited 3 minutes, car restarted and ran perfect, no lights. This morning same thing. This time it did start idling high as if it may b running a bit lean ?

to make sure and clear just the epc light would come on but not the check engine light when you turn the key on after it stalls to try to restart correct?

I have not received any info pertaining to the problem with the Jetta. This has taken so much time with no helpful answers. I diagnosed the problem on my my own. Thanks anyway, I am requesting a refund. Regards, *****
