Electronic power control. Could be something wrong with ( ignition, computer or even the throttle if it's electronically controlled. If it starts it's probably not the ignition. If it starts , but runs really bad or shuts itself off then it's probably the computer. If it starts and idles fine , but want rev up or go when you step on the gas then it moght be an electronic throttle issue. There may also be a central module that allocates power to certain ereas that has freaked out and doesn't know what to do.

Epc light comes on in your seat ibiza?

The EPC light came on today on a 2001 Seat Ibiza, along with the car's lock suddenly locking. After 3 or 4 efforts, we figured that the problem was solved unlocking the car using the key while the engine was on (the electronics on the car always blocked when the EPC came on). After that the EPC light switched off. I hope you can solve the problem this way.

EPC light on?

The EPC light comes on when there is an issue with the electronic power control or drive by wire. The only way to know what is causing it to come on is to have it connected to a code reader. Many auto part stores will pull the codes for free.
