Seat belt light "not airbag" [Solved]

So I just picked up some decent sport seats. Everything is good, no airbag light, but I do have a constant seat belt light. I'm going to swap the buckles from my old seats over as they worked fine.
I just want to know what it is I need to swap. Is it the buckles? From doing some searching, if it was the sensor to see if there was a passenger then I would get a airbag light. So is it just the buckle itself?

I have searched of course, but appears most people get an airbag light, or I'm not searching properly.

ALSO: I scanned with PA soft, didnt pull any codes with seats. Tried with seatbelts connected and disconnected.






If you were ever contemplating doing a sport seat upgrade. Do it!?

Been looking for some time. They go for around $500 up in good condition?

Drove 3 hours for these, talked the guy down to $400. So that's what I paid. Look really good after I cleaned them up. Can't say what a dealer would cost. I think someone said $2,500 for the whole set? Seat belt and all? Who knows...

Guys, there's a guy in charleston SC (craigslist) selling the entire inside of his e46 seats and all for $450... And they look like they are in immaculate condition... Seats, pillars, door covers etc...

Bump:

Going to swap the buckles and go from there. Any help with why there's no error codes when scanning?

Funny that PA didn't pick up any codes because my PA picked up seat occupance sensor SRS code.
Did you check the codes below SRS?

Did you have a airbag light or just the constant seatbelt light like I have?

EDIT:

Disabled the seatbelt buckle switch, light went out. Enabled ONLY drivers, and light came one. When I enable ONLY passenger, light it off. So Now to continue my journey.

Solved the problem. It was indeed the seat belt buckle.

Swapped them from my old seats. No more light!
