HelloWelcome to JA!The EPC indicator is a standard in These vehicles have drive-by-wire systems that are computer-controlled. When a fault exists with the throttle pedal, throttle body, traction control and cruise control, the EPC warning light illuminates. In many instances, the vehicle’s throttle may be limited when this light is illuminated in order to protect the engine. Often, there is just enough power enough to get the vehicle to a service facility for repairs. You will want to have the car scanned for a code or codes to determine why the light is on. Let me know if i can help more!RD
