Defective occupancy sensor on passenger seat. Temporary fix - plug the passenger seat belt into the buckle and it goes off

Saab made the seat button so that pressure gave the signal either that pressure switch needs a new one or it could just need a little 3 in 1 oil on the switch otherwise you will need to try connecting the Safety strap but I do not think that will work because the light is made to work through weight on the seat, try to find a telephone book or something with enough weight to fool the switch & let it think someone is sitting there. Parts are going to be hard to find but any pressure switch mechanism should work as long as it is not a heavy duty one otherwise you will end up with a bag of cement on the seat. Ask any Good Saab dealer. Best Wishes.

here we are again with an old car that ford got it's greasy hands on, and it does strange things as it is now 9 years old it will have problems so plug the seat belt into the clip when no one is sat in the car the light will go out not a problem unless you are going to spend money getting it fixed but it is an old car.
