Motor Control system failure

Hello. yesterday my warning light bleeped, then went off, bleeped again and after the 4th time it stayed on. There is also a horrible sort of possibly egg smell in and by the bonnet of car. I'm hoping this is something simple as I have already spent 700 on repairs in April this year, on top of having a new alternator in January!! Any suggestions please?

Need to get in on a code reader and see what fault codes you have.

but could be cats as they can smell eggy sometimes.

Has the car been standing for a long time? Just asking because I recently bought a neighbour's Focus that had been standing for about 3 months, that smelled eggy for a few drives, then cleared up.
