I'd guess it's the low-oil light. Can you post a photo?

Thumbs up Low oil light

Its not the low oil light because it is next to it, so basically there are two oil cans and one of them has a zig zag line underneath it, sort of looks like this - /\/\/\/\/\/\

Did you ever figure this out? This just happened to me two days ago. I was at a stop after running the car for about 5 minutes and notice that exact light. When I started to accelerate it went away and hasn't come back. I checked the oil, trans. and coolant levels and all were fine. The only thing that was low was my power steering fluid. That can't be it could it?

I think you're right. To the OP, check out your oil level. Originally, when the light first came on, I checked all the levels after the car cooled off a little. In recent days I've notice the light come on more and more. Sunday morning, stone cold, I checked all the fluids again and the oil level was at half. Filled it up and so far so good. I'll keep a check, of course, on this and post back with my results.

Phil is correct. The two oil can lights are the following:

Oil level low - orange oil can with wavey lines
Oil pressure low - red oil can with a drip coming from the spout.
