I know that your SIPS system has to be scanned every so often. My car has a sticker on the side of the last inspection. What year and model are we talking about?

yes. what you can do is remove the plug on the air bag and jump it with a paper clip or wire and the srs light will go out.

first of all..on that jumper wire you need about 2.5-2.9 ohms resistance, then will the airbag light reset on it's own ummm! when the airbag light is on usually the whole system is disabled. might want to go see a local volvo mecanic, because here in canada volvo de3alers seem only want to replace parts instead of inspecting the actual problem.
