EPC light.

Hello everyone! I'm sorry if this is posted in the wrong section.

My Audi a3 2012 1.4 TFSI comes up with the EPC warning light and check engine light, the car feels really sluggish and won't go anywhere fast.

However if I restart the car 2 or 3 times the EPC light goes and feels normal again, but the check engine light stays.

Sometimes when restarting the car both check engine light and the EPC light go.

What could be the most likely cause?

Could be loads of things, probably best to get it plugged in to find the error.

When the EPC light comes on the car will probably go into limp mode, so that is why it will feel sluggish.

My other half’s Seat Leon did something similar and it was a Turbo Actuator fault.

Cheers
