At Calgary no fault was found by maintenance and the aircraft is continuing to operate under the appropriate MEL.
2005-02-01: WJA 701, a B737-200, was departing Saskatoon when the crew rejected their takeoff and taxied back to the gate. They advised ATC that they had some kind of warning light. No other flights were inconvenienced.
2005-02-02: UPDATE Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that on the takeoff roll, the crew noticed a light flash on the Flight Control annunciator panel, so they rejected the takeoff and returned to the gate.

The aircraft is presently in maintenance in Calgary undergoing trouble shooting.
