Question about 1993 Hyundai Elantra
Yes, it can be anything and you may need to have the codes check, but it can be nothing to be found.
I do have the same problem in my accord and elantra, when their milage counter up to a defined number, their mil will remind you to take them to have a body checkup. they may have nothing wrong!
Simply disconnect the battery "+" connector and wait for around 1/2 hour, connect the power back on, the counter should be reset. if the mil return back on right a way, definately it needs to be fixed. otherwise, it is in a good shape and can be run until the next milage counter set.

I had the samething happen to my Jetta. I took it to the dealer and nothing was wrong.
I would think it's safe to drive until Monday when the VW shop opens.
My 2 cents

Tips for a great answer:
The MIL illuminates during a bulb test and a system test.
A DTC will be stored if a MIL is requested by the diagnostic.

Whenever this warning light or any
other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control
module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil
pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then
disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS, MIL,
CEL and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must
now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and
"scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the
Legend of Abbreviations. ABS Anti-lock brake system. TCS Traction control system, TCM Transmission control module, SRS Supplemental restraint system, BCM Body control module. TPMS Tire Pressure Monitor System, MIL Malfunction Indicator Lamp, CEL Check Engine Light.
