As you may know, the EPC light stands for "Electronic Power Control" which is a general fault indicator signaling that something has been detected that is abnormal relating to the traction control, the throttle control, the cruise control or the throttle body. I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your location to diagnose your symptoms to properly determine what may be causing this light to come on.
