these cars are equipped with an ODBC II, IIRC, connector. Take it to a shop and hook up the computer and read the codes, etc. It is the starting point. ANY rep. Ferrari dealership or such can do this. Boardwalk in TX, who just bought FofSF, has a very good set of mechs on site.
PS: As a side note: I do not believe your A/C has much if anything to do with this check engine light. Typically if it's orange vs red it can be rested and run. IF RED turn off engine and have it towed to dealership.
Which lights are showing on the dash?
As a side note: belts should be changed in time OR miles. The latter hardly every apply as most never see the 30k, even, over 20 years. The factor then becomes TIME. 3 years, OR 30k miles. You are about due, but don't believe that's the problem, however, IMO, playing with a potential time bomb.
IF orange too, it may only mean a rich mix and/or the CATs are getting too hot: Well known problem.
Also, IF the 355 is on original set of exhaust manifolds, then you might want to truly have this checked out, soon.
IF RED, once again, get to shop.
