Hi, raymond:

EPC is probably Electronic Power Control. Chances are a sensor has mal-functioned. It is best to get the codes read so you know exactly which one is causing the problem. Some common failures are the CPS (Crankshaft Position Sensor) or MAF (Mass Air Flow sensor).

Just recently another member had similar problem and here is the thread in the W210 forum (your car is a W210). He had a rather dramatic finding.

Electronic Power Control, may also mean you have a bad battery or a charging problem so check these as well.
