1998 Volvo Station wagon...

1998 Volvo Station wagon. Seat belt warning lights and ignition light (where key inserts won’t go off when car is off and key is removed. Drains battery.

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

Red seat belt lights by rear view mirror and light which illuminates where key inserts on steering column.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Station yourself? What have you tried so far?

Don’t know what to try. We also had a problem yesterday with the flashers going on by themselves and not turning off. We locked and unlocked the car 20 timesto override it and it worked. Now the mentioned lights won’t go off and drained the battery.
