Ford C-Max - "Limited EPB" warning light

I own a Ford C-Max 1.6 diesel. For the past two week, the car has started displaying a message on start up. The message says “Limited EPB” but goes away after a few seconds and drives fine. Should I ignore it or is there something wrong with my car?

The EPB is the electric parking brake. You may want to get the battery checked out as a faulty battery can cause this light to come on. It can also indicate that the alternator has a fault.
