Hi I'm Kevin normally the loom itself gets stretched at the plug the seat will have four bolt holding it into the floor if you put seat all the way back and undo the two at the front then all the way forward you can undo the rear bolts then carefully tilt seat backwards revealing loom the best rectification on this type of fault is to compleatly remove plug and solder wires together

No worries like I say once seat is lifted the plug is best removed the soldering of the wires has to be perfect otherwise high resistance will be in circuit causing light to stay on also the light will have to be turned out it wont go out on it's own
