When I first got the 1986 S the warning light would come on once in a while. Now its on almost all the time and sometimes blinks on/off when I hit a bump. No other indicators are showing on the dash. What could it be?

Probably one of the indicator lights is burned out and that is the one that is faulting... You need to check that ASAP. When you turn the key to the aux position all the dash lights should be on and your owners manual will tell you what/where each light is. You can see if any are burned out. Also if it the systems thinks your engine oil pressure is low it will blink, it will blink if it thinks your alt voltage is to low and I think the T-belt warning gets it blinking too.

I think it is in the tips section where you can find the owners manuals. They are at the top when you open one of the forums.

I filled up my radiator reservoir with coolent and the light doesn't come on as much. I surmise it may come on occasionally as a low voltage warning - when I am running both air conditioners the quage will bounce around 10 volts.

Yup, it will turn on with Low Voltage and low Oil Pressure!
