FLASHING SEAT BELT LIGHTS

1998 Toyota Corolla

Electrical problem
1998 Toyota Corolla 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 72000 miles

Hi, since last month the seat belt lights in my car have started flashing, and the light does not go off even after fastening the seat belt(s) properly. This started happening all of a sudden, and now the lights don't go off.
What could be the problem? And, what's the best fix for it? Is this a small electrical probem, or a safety concern?
Thank you for your expert advice.
Regards,
Sam

It is an electrical problem. When seat buckle attaches to base it completes and electrical circuit, making the light go out.

You will have to get the base switch replaced.
