VW Rabbit Question

Gf has a 2008 rabbit with 75k on it and recently got EPC light on the dashboard. Anyone with VW knowledge here might have an idea as to what it could be? In the manual, EPC stands for Electronic Power Control. As far as drivability, everything is normal. Car drives fine without any hickups. Any help would be appreciated.

EPC is usually one of 3 things... MAF issue, Accel Pedal issue, or Throttle body issue.

I would clean the MAF first w/ some rubbing alcohol clear the codes and see if it comes back.

Check the connector at the throttle body too. Apparently that's an issue with them. My gf has a rabbit too. Throttle body gave up
