Sooooo...there's one light that is an exclamation point with a triangle in red around it(looks imp) on my dashboard. I think in the speedo. What does that mean?

If anyone can post a link for an owners manual, a service or parts manual would be great too, I'de really appreciate it. 1997 900s

The big red triangle is the warning (read WARNING) alarm that usually points to another alarm, like SRS (air bags), ABS (antilock braking), oil pressure or charging voltage. The first thing that I would do is turn on the ignition (without starting the car) and see if all the instrument cluster lamps are lighted - especially the oil pressure lamp. You may need to use a flashlight pointed at the cluster to see all of the lights that aren't lighting... Ron

Today, I think, eBay Motors has one, $10, its very much a supply and demand thing.
A manual for a Mustang could be a $50 offering. The one that I have(Lincoln) is probably worthless.
But one never knows for certain.

I have set it off for ABS reasons during extremely hard turns at Saabtoberfests in the past. :lol:

If anyone's interested, the 2000 and later Saab manuals (except the 2010) are here:

Thanx...that deff sent me in the right direction. I know I shouldn't want something for nothing but it's 2010 and theres gota be a manual for Sandra somewhere. I used to find manuals for my suzuki motorbikes and my honda's all the time. I'm goin to look around for a manual and put the link up in this thread if I find one.
