Engine Management light

Hi Guys,
I have got a 156 1.9 JTD 16v. If I accelerate up to half throttle all works well and we can get up a decent speed, however if I put my foot to the floor after about 3500 rpm the center consul beeps and brings up a warning light saying Engine System Failure go to dealer. It puts the car into a sort of limp home mode where I can not accelerate past 3000rpm. But after stopping and starting the engine several times the light disappears and we go back to normal until I boot it again. I have just done a full ECU reboot but on the drive out it went again.
Has any one else had this or know what I might need to do to cure it?

Many Thanks Joff.
