Hi debstoy3, EPC stands for Electronic Pedal Control. This is a monitor for your brake pedal. Hope this helps!

Don't listen to anyone who tells you EPC stands for electronic pedal control. It stands for electronic POWER control and it means the onboard computer has switched to a BACKUP system with limited capabilities, probably because you have one or more faulty sensors. Take it to Auto Zone and ask them to read your trouble codes, which they do for free.

Thanks, Kanfan. I did not know Auto Zone does this FREE. Great way to start DIY.
