Default Audi 5000S '88 Newbie

Hey guys, Im 17 and my dad bought this thing used before he passed away almsot 3 years ago, it's been sitting ever since with only a few drives through it. Basically, me and my friend found out the battery was dead and changed it, now it runs but I am a total Newbie with cars and face a problem. everytime I run the car, above the speedometre there reads an error message that consists of a round edged triangle with an ! in the middle, I have NO clue what this means. If anyone could tell me that would be great. Also if theirs any FAQS or stickies on this model to help me gain some knowledge I would greatly appreacte it.

Thank you.

Wouldn't that be the parking brake light? Makes sense if all you were doing was letting it run in your garage with out the car going anywhere, right?

My friend, you have a problem. First check oil level from hydraulic system and from brake system too. After that check hydraulic system for leaks. Good luck.
