That is the warning light that means that continued driving with the engine in its current condition will destroy the motor.

I've seen it twice on my Saab: once when I blew a main coolant return line, and once when I had a major oil leak that made the oil pour straight through the engine and out.

Do not drive your vehicle until you have determined the source of the problem, unless you want to buy a new engine.

If you'd like help diagnosing the actual cause of the light, feel free to contact me.

I have an srs light and triangle with ! On the middle lit up on my dash of my 96 saab 900s. What does this mean I can't figure it out?

The abs warning light is telling the driver the system has a problem and is disabled. You still have regular brakes, but not ABS.
The triangle is telling the driver the stability control is also disabled.
Each system uses the other to function, so if a problem shows up in one it will disable both.
You would need to get the car computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed.
