Engine warning light - any thoughts?

I have had the "engine control system" warning light come on, on my 2003 GTV 2.0. As seems to happen (judging by previous posts), it then disappeared on the next run but came back on today.

I will try to get it checked by my local (general, non-Alfa) garage tomorrow, but does anyone have any thoughts on typical issues - or even ways to find out possible issues? A friend told me that on some cars (Scoobies, in his experience) you can play with a couple of hidden connectors to get the light to flash in a certain way to suggest the issue.

The car is under warranty (when bought second hand), so hopefully it won't be much, and covered by the warranty!

I have been very lucky with my Alfa experience so far - 147 previously, over 5 years very happy motoring in total...

Any thoughts appreciated.

Re: Engine warning light - any thoughts?

The light covers a multitude of errors, could be many things. Any good general garage and all the specialists will have diagnostic software able to find the fault.
