Alfa 159 1.9 amber engine warning code

Hi all, just new to the forum.

Just bought an Alfa 159 JTDM 16v yesterday evening its a 2008 model with 135kil on the clock with full main dealer service history.

Anyhow all was well until I went to start the car again last night and I get a warning message ( Have engine checked) and the amber symbol appeared on the dash. I also notice when cold the rev counter needle is hunting but settles down when the engine warms up.

However took car for a run this morning the car seems to drive ok amber light still on got home turned off the car, than turned it back on again and guess what no warning or amber light code which I believe from the book means fuel injector!!Have I bought a lemon or is this common or do I have a serious problem[/U]Any help or comments much appreciated!!!
