The letters "EPC" are lit up on my instrument panel, by the tachometer.
The light goes on and off intermittantly.
What does this mean?
Does it go off after a while? I know I'm having this problem right now I also have a disabled ASR light on as well after my EPC light comes on and my car runs rough. I'm going to replace my coil pack today well in about 30 mins and see if that fixes my issue. If not time for a new MAF and see what that does. Does your car run rough? if so it could be a coiil pack issue

Is this something that could wait a few weeks, or can it do damage if not treated ASAP?
Well Mine would come on then go off after a while. I fit stays on you might want to take it to the dealer. I know mine was a coil Pack I just came back from replacing it. No more lights and a smoother ride now. It stinks having to install the thing in the rain and while you are in a rush.

No EPC means Electronic Pedal Control. Doesn't deal with emissions. Its tied into your cruise control and brake lights switch.
Ah no, I believe it meand Emergency Power control. in the Manual it says if it blinks you need to stop and pull over and get a tow. If it comes on you might get reduced engine power. I know you could feel it because mine came on all the time then went off. I'm hoping I fixed my problem with my new coil.

Nope, electronic pedal control, or electronic power control. Its mostly refferd as pedal control. Also has to do with the position of the gas pedal.

Yes, and it's "...a system containing all components that contribute to determining, regulating and monitoring the throttle valve position (e.g. accelerator pedal position sensor, throttle valve control module, Electronic Power Control (EPC) warning lamp, Engine Control Module)."
