    That's the SES light (Service Engine Soon). It's for non-emissions problems, and the codes can only be read by a pro scanner, not generic OBD scanners. So either a dealer item or a repair shop that has some professional diagnostic equipment to tell you what's up with the light.

    In any event, have it checked out as soon as you can.

    That is a service reminder light. it comes on every three to five thousand miles to remind you to change your oil and service the car. To reset it if you or your own mechanic do your own oil changes, try turning the key on, engine off and pumping the gas pedal three times. if not, look in the fuse box for a red reset button. if its there, hold it in till it beeps, and that light starts to flash. if neither, call a saturn dealer and ask them how to reset the service light.
