    There should be a list of all the warning lights in the cars handbook. On
    our 960, it's on one of the first few pages. Some vehicles include this on a
    quick reference card (my fathers new VW Golf for example)...

    That's the lambda (check engine) light. You'll need to get the trouble
    code read with an OBD-II code reader.

    Hi Joe,

    According to my owner's manual the triangle light to the right of the Tracs
    Off lamp is "Fault in engine electronic system". Sorry :))

    Try disconnecting the battery for 5 minutes,reconnecting and then
    start the car, if it's still lit up it will either be the
    cat.converter or one of the Lamba sensors gone down if it goes out it
    might just have been a piece of muck hitting the sensor and giving a
    temp. false reading. Disconnecting the battery is a easy way of
    clearing the fault codes.My 850 2.5 20V does it every now and then.
