    Check your connections.

    If I remember (but don't quote me), look under the seat for where the wiring hooks together. Perhaps it came loose or came apart and just need to be clicked in?

    If you unplug the connection underneath the driver's seat the light will stay off.

    Not being a wise guy, but is it your drivers seat or passenger seat light flashing?

    My passenger seat doesn't need much of a sack of groceries to start the passenger seatbelt light blinking.

    A 12 pk of beer will more than set it off.

    First gens don't have a passenger side one.

    And blegros said that if you unplug it the light will stay off...so it might be a connection in the seatbelt holster thing itself.

    yeah, IMO if you can't tell if your seat belt is on by the fact that there's a strap across your chest, you have bigger problems that a blinking light wont fix.
