    7-1 Driver Safety Belt Buckle Switch Circuit Short to Ground

    Some say its a sensor on the passenger seat which is not cheap. There's two parts to this... the module bolted to the floor under the seat, and the sensor mat glued on top of the passenger seat cushion.

    Sorry couldnt give any more details depends on how confident you both are in how the repair will go. Could be as simple as a wiring connector issue or the whole module might need to be replaced. I can't be sure.
