    I have a 98 wagon and i noticed that the air bag light in the cluster doesn't work at all when i switch the ignition key, i thought the bulb was bad so i replaced the bulb with another one that's working and got no light, then i replaced the cluster with one from a junkyard to add an RPM tachometer and still no light at all.

    is the SRS system non-functional? is it a blown fuse?
    could anyone guide me on how to check and troubleshoot the SRS system and wiring.

    If it were a fuse or something, the light would be on to warn of an issue with the airbag, perhaps a bad ground to the bulbsomewhere?
