The instrument panel board contains what Volvo calls a "safery
circuit" whose block in the diagram has connections to GND, 12V, SRS
module, and the lamp, so I suppose it may be bad.
The SRS service manual has 5 pages devoted to troubleshooting a
non-lig SRS light. Still, in this case, since the SRS module has been
replaced, the only things left are:
3. Instrument panel.
Changing the instriment panel board is not an easy task.. To do it
right, the glove compartment and dash top must be removed.
