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.

Emergency brake stuck on 96 land rover cant find cable underneath carriage, is there a secondary release.. this is soooo stupid.. I feel I've looked everywhere please hepl..

Probably the same set up as my 96 Discovery, Automatic transmission. The emergency brake is the drum (looks like a big metal flywheel, about 14 inches diameter) on the output of the center differential going to the drive shaft for the rear wheels. There is a short cable from there up to the driver's lever. By disconnecting the rear drive shaft, the e-brake drum can be removed. Its pretty heavy, so don't drop it on your knogan.
