saab 900 se turbo-newb question

I am new to saabs in general, but not to turbo cars. My dad picked up a a 900 se (95 or 96....can't remember which). It has a "shift up" light that comes on a lot. Definitly when it is not supposed to be coming on, is this a common problem, or is it just the beginning of a larger problem? It comes on under normal almost no throttle driving.

Any insights? I did a quick search but found nothing so please don't bash on me if this is a common question.

The upshift light comes on when it is optimal for fuel economy, not performance.
