That's the Engine Management Light - the equivalent of the "Motor Control System Failure" that owners of Facelift cars complain about......it means that one of many sensors has reported an "out of range" value - intermittent in your case, it would appear. Only way to tell just what it is, is by getting the fault codes read, with something like MultiECUscan - or of course dealer diagnostics.
No point guessing what it is, really....but there's every chance that it isn't anything too important - I ran one of our 156s for about 18 months with it illuminated as it was reported as "cam sensor" - had little effect on running - certainly not enough to justify an early cambelt change.
