RE: warning lights

The warning I am getting is the RED triangle with the exclamation mark
in the middle.  It is almost always on.  It seems the only time it comes
off is after driving several (20-30 miles) at highway speed without
slowing down OR when I am having a bit of fun and really get the revs
up, over and over and over, such as when playing on a windy road.  Any
more ideas.....?
