Hello and welcome to Just Answer

This sounds like an airbag or SRS ( safety restraint system) fault

I'd begin by disconnecting the battery and then disconnect and clean the connectors under the seat

use some contact cleaner on both sides and check the wiring for any damage

if this doesn't help then you will need to get the car plugged into a STAR diagnostic device to pull off the air bag / body module codes
