On my way to work today I pulled to a stop at a traffic light and I felt my 1.8T shut off (I have an automatic, by the way). I looked at the dash and the battery light was on. I put the car in park, turned the key off all the way, then tried to turn it back on. It took a while cranking up but eventually started and I was able to get to work. After I started the car that time, the EPC light was on, but not the battery light. When I got to work, I parked, shut the car off, then turned it back on to see if the light was still there. It wasn't; the dash was clean.
Any ideas? I saw mentioned on another site that perhaps my alternator was the problem, but I don't know if that was specific to my vehicle.
Any help is appreciated.
