Thanks for posting

Without anyone in the seat connect the seatbelt to the buckle, does the seat belt light still blink? Does the beeper sound?

has the seat recently been removed for any reason?

Has the car been in an accident recently?

it’s stays blinking. No beeper. Airbag always on off. No accident. Seat hasn’t been removed but does seem a little loose

Thanks for the reply

Check the seatbelt buckle for any foreign object that may have fallen inside, if it's clear try replacing the buckle part, the switch to turn the light off is in the buckle. There could also be a problem with the occupant classification system, this senses if a person is sitting in the seat, there could be a fault of the seat weight sensor or ir may just need to be re calibrated so before just trying to put a part on and hope it works I would recommend to have it diagnosed correctly, preferably at a Toyota dealer using the diagnostic computer, as I said it may be just a simple recalibration of the system to take care of this.
