Question Dash lights staying on

We have a 1994 850 non turbo that has the dash lights staying on even when key is out of ignition. Dash lights meaning all the symbols are staying on except abs light. Does anyone know what may be causing this issue? Could it be a fuse or problem with the ignition switch itself? Please help with any suggestions.

It shouldn't be a fuse as that would cause it to not have power if it failed. I'm guessing it might be the ignition switch as I've seen them cause many problems with ghost dash and idiot lights. Haven't run across this exact problem before thought.

What did you find on it ??
