Engine Management Failure - Poor Starting

There are a few EMCF posts on this forum. My issue I don't believe is uncommon - have a 147 16v jtm and developed the fault about 3 weeks ago. Nothing too serious - low revs immediately after starting which then quickly self-corrected to normal turnover. There was some with intermittant power loss around 2000rpm but this was not very often. Then yesterday the power loss was more consistant with real trouble starting, failing to bite with sufficient revs to get going.

Couple of questions:

There was a bulb failure warning just before the EMCF - is this linked? I have checked bulbs but cannot see any out.

Is it worth disconnecting the battery to see if it clears?

There is a suggestion to take out the EMU and give a air / clean. Recommended?

Would appreciate any insight on likely issues - I am thinking possibly oxygen sensor?
