SOURCE: My 1997 VW POLO CLASSIC has a new fuel pump

It is possible if there are codes in the ECU(computer)
which leads you to that conclusion.
And it's hard to tell you if your mechanic right or wrong without having the car for diagnostics.
There are many other causes for engine to loose power.

SOURCE: Windshield fluid squirter doesn't work - 99 Maxima

I would first test your washer pump ( squirter) by a 12 volt source such as battery take 2 wires one for negative and one for positive leads from your battery or other source of 12 volts to the leads on your pump if pump is bad it will not run, you can bypass the switch in the same manner only remove the switch connectors from switch and apply the power to your car connection.

I have a 2006 Polo Classic & noticed my EPC light

The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

Headlights will not come on 2007 Caravan

Could be. You also may want to check the wiring going into your switch. Your switch could also be going out. It sounds like a wiring issue to me.
