Why does the seat belt light on your 1998 Toyota Tercel 2 door come on when the driver's seat belt is fastened?

It is probably because the sensor under the seat for the seat belt has disconnected

--Same thing happened to me. The light would go out when I pulled on the seatbelt. The reason was the simple fact that the belt was twisted before it came out of the shoulder "bracket". Oh... The sensor is in the door post, not under the seat. I also thought of that eventuality and checked. Nope, no sensor under the seat!
