Sounds like the brake bomb to me...not certain though.  I have a friend with a
89.5 200 10v with his BRAKE light on.  We trouble shooted the entire system
and it is his leaking (or by now fully evacuated) brake
accumulator--everything else works just fine.  I just checked my list of
receipts and the previous owner replaced the brake accumulator for $345 from
the dealer.  I know that you can get it on line for $250'ish.  (Ouch!).

Good luck
