      Recently my Jetta has been having trouble starting. After about three or four tries, it finally starts but the EPC light always comes on after this happens. Usually I can turn the car off and it will restart easily and the light will go off. What could be causing this and what can I do to fix it? (The check engine light has also been going on and off...)

      The same thing happened to me today. I was sitting in the drive thru and my car just cut off. I tried to crank it again and nothing. I waited 10 seconds and it started right up with no lights. About 2 minutes later it cut off again and it took three times to get it running but when it came back on the EPC light was on also. I finally got to where I was going and I cut the car off and back on with no problem and the EPC light was off.
