Seat belt chime problems

Hey all- Been having an issue with my 06 E=350 work van. The seat belt chime wont shut off on drivers side. Tried to turn it off per the manual & no help. The only way I can keep it quiet is to unplug the harness under the seat & now I have a air bag light on the dash. Does this mean my airbag is non functional ? I always use my seat belt anyway, Dinging was driving me nutty. Thanks for any help in advance.

GreeVan is starting off with a positive reputation.
If you unplug the connector, you lose the pretensioner feature on the buckle (not good). The problem seems to be on the switch inside the buckle. I'll try to spray electronics contact cleaner or carburetor cleaner. Worst case, you could probably cut the cables that go inside the buckle itself and tie them together.

I tried spraying the buckle with electrical contact cleaner twice a week or so ago with no help. May have to cut / splice the wires. Appreciate the insight
