I also had a problem with the engine warning light coming on some years ago, same engine as yours. I took the car to an independent lotus specialist, they checked the software, contacted Lotus and found that there was an updated version which they obtained. Since then I've not had a problem. Might be worth exploring that idea before anything else. Hope you get sorted as i know how frustrating something like that can be.
