I just purchased a 1996 850 Turbo wagon, and after driving it for a couple of hours a warning light came on and stayed on. It is orange with a green warning triangle and what looks like an upside down Y in the center. It's the second from the far right on the bottom row. Before I take it to a dealer I'm curious as to what it is. The manual doesn't show it. Thanks

It's the Lambda warning light of exhaust emissions, which means that your emissions are incorrect and probably illegal, depending on which state you're in.

I'm afraid it means a trip to the dealer or a garage with an exhaust gas analyser; it could mean that the lambda sensor in the exhaust pipe has gone U/S.

This could either be to a loose connection or the sensor failing.
