Alfa GT 54 reg 2.0JTS error P1176

Motor control system failure light came on today. FES tells me it's mixture 2 strength (additive) signal low. I've read here and there it could be MAF, it coulkd be lambda or even cam sensor. Is there a definitive result? I don't fancy driving it if it's cam related but would like to see what it is.

Edited to add - a few weeks ago I left the car at the airport for 3 days. On the return journey I got the old ABS and VCD warnings, only for them to clear upon restarting the engine. This current MCSF warning comes after my car has been sleeping over the weekend, over 60 hours. I flattened the car battery while powering the laptop through a voltage inverter to run FES and diagnose the current error code. Just reconnected after a quick charge and the car started and the warning light extinguished. Am hoping this is all as a result of a duff battery but would still appreciate ideas on what the error relates to.
Aaaagh how did the forum section change? I selected the 147, 156 and GT section, can a mod correct my mistake please?!!!!
