Hi im kevin the epc light means electronic power control and its basically the system used to control the throttle system the engine ECU (Electronic Control Unit) detects a fault in the system it will put on the EPC light. If the fault is considered serious it will stop the throttle working altogether and the engine will be limited to a 1500 rpm idle speed.there are a couple of common items that can cause this throtle pedal ,throttle flap ,brake light switch .but the only way to know the exact cause is to have car plugged into diagnostic machine
