Headlights stay on all the time regardless of headlight switch position. Additionally, no dash lights and no shift indicator lights. The computer display in the dash does work however, as well as turn signals, etc.

Also, pulled a fuse by accident and the SRS light came on. Can I reset this? Unhooking the battery did nothing.

You may be running on "Daylight Running" if that's the phrase. As per Volvos, some Saabs have the lights set to be on all the time.

This can be changed, though I don't know how to do it. Hopefully someone else will be able to advise on this.

Dash lights can often be adjusted by a little wheel on the dash -- check to make sure it's not turned down.

I always leave my headlights on for greater safety and visibility, so I wouldn't worry much about that. (Unless you're really worried about having to replace headlights more often. If you're not using high-end bulbs, I wouldn't worry about this either.)

As for the SRS, it seeems the consensus is that you have to get this reset by the dealer, unfortunately. However, it should only take a couple minutes, and cost under $40.00.
