there is a problem with your safety switches , likely the seat one is always closed , even when seat is occupied.

or the wiring to the seat switch is grounded somewhere, maybe a squished wire.

Yep, but on AYPs like this, there is that switch within the connector. Unplug it and it thinks no-one is on the seat.

I wasn't implying that your reply was unnecessary, I was just showing the original poster that their question was already answered and where to find it, since they never replied. (In case you thought my reply was directed at you).
