156 engine management light

Hi, I have just bought a 156 and have no handbook, the amber engine symbol came on yesterday and now stays on, I assume its a engine management warning, but is it urgent!!

hi dave...

mine started doing this, i found after a couple of restarts it would go off, but would come back on again after another couple of re-starts... but the car would run fine...

i was going to get mine plug in to a code reader, but i seam to have sorted it replacing the thermostat, i found my temp gauge would not come up over 60... replaced the stat and its now shows 90 when warm, and the EML light has now stopped coming on.. result... with checking that...

Could be anything tbh ... I've even seen it come on when there's been a problem with the low speed fan relay ...
