We'd need more information than 'my brakes don't work' to offer an opinion.
Have you done anything such as check the brake fluid, fuses?...Read the manual (section 5.2)?
These cars are old, all the information is dated.

What he said. :)

Usually both lights coming on at the same means the accumulator has failed, but you definitely should start with fluid & fuses.

Thanks for getting back to me. I checked the fuses on the right side of the engine compartment. All good. Pulled the connections in that area and hear the master cylinder. All clean. I'm with the failed accumulator. Saab model seams to NLA. I understand this system was common. What other models can be used?

I would not classify the system as common. While it was used in a number of cars, they were all low volume and 30 years ago... you're not going to call up Jaguar or Merkur and find one. There are some Chinese copies you can find on ebay or Aliexpress … results are mixed, but beggars can't be choosers.
