Just had a similar problem. Took my 2003 Volkswagen Jetta 2.0l auto in for an oil change. They also checked the air filter. When finished, I started it up and the EPC and MIL (aka CEL, check engine light) lamps came on.
Figured it was just a glich caused by draining/refilling the oil and that it would reset itself by the next day. No luck. So, after checking to make sure the gas cap was tight, I poked my head under the hood. Made sure the oil fill cap was on tight. They also checked the engine air filter so I took a look over there. Low and behold, the ding-a-ling at the shop neglected to reconnect the MAF sensor cable. That is the electronic connector on the air intake hose between the engine and the air filter box.
Plugged that back in and bing, EPC light went out. MIL still on, but if I recall, after a "major" event, the MIL won't go out until it is reset. Taking it back to the shop to have the code cleared.
So, long story short, if you get an EPC and MIL, first check to make sure that the MAF is properly connected.

The EPC light is connected to a pressure sensor in the block. Open the oil filler cap, release the pressure (and check your oil while you're at it). If you don't have a real problem, the light should go out.

SOURCE: WHAT'S EPC MEANS ON THE
EPC = Engine Power Control it's the engine control module yellow warning light.
You need access and erase the EPC memory by DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to reset the EPC, and turn off the EPC yellow light.

You have an engine code for something. Take it into a local parts store and most of them will scan for free... otherwise look online or on ebay and you can find scanners for cheap. VW's get a lot of lights it seems because everything is really regulated.
