991 engine warning post hibernation

I have a 2013 991 Gen1 Carrera which has been hibernating over the winter. After recent start up, a warning appeared on the dash after a few miles. A yellow engine outline is accompanied by "Fault engine control. Possible to drive on". A colleague suggested that problems could occur if the battery was not fully charged (although it has been on smart charger all winter) so I have topped up but no change. Are there anything I can check or does it need a visit to Porsche dealer?
Thanks for any advice

I suspect it's an emissions control system failure, but it'll need a diagnostics readout to confirm.
