Another quick question, is it safe to continue driving with the epc on, it is not flashing (on steady)? I live in a rural area with sketchy cell service and I am wondering if this will cause the car to just shut down?? Thanks for any info. provided

    depending on the fault it could be fine to drive for years or cause the engine to go to idle with no throttle response. the question is how lucky do you feel? the whole stuck thing is probably less than a 10% chance.
