Agree: unplug and reseat the connector. If there is a sensor on the passenger seat too, then reseat that connection as well.
DO NOT add dielectric grease to the connector.
Despite (what seems to be ) popular belief by idiots everywhere, dielectric grease isn't conductive: it won't improve the connection.
Just wanted to throw this out here in advance. I doubt anyone here would be foolish enough to suggest it, but people trying to troubleshoot their cars end up asking me what's gone wrong and they seem to like adding this crap to their connectors, plugs, etc when things go awry in an attempt to fix it.
I unplugged the connector and both ends looked good , wires look to be in good shape ( no chafing ). Its an intermittant problem which only seems to happen about 90% of the time you drive the car. I just wonder how to test the seat belt buckle itself to see if there is a connection problem, maybe a worn wire or something from 9 years of buckling up.
If it's not the connector, it may be the switch itself. I don't think it's replaceable. You may have to go to a junkyard or have the dealer order you a new buckle receptacle. I don't recall right off if they anchor to the seat frame or to the floor.
PM ZSpot, who is a member here. He can probably look up the part number for you and get it shipped to you at reasonable cost if that's what is needed.
