Update; believe this is being caused from the wire under driver chair that connect to the seatbelt restraint if I wiggle it and push the clip it goes off after turning ignition on and off,.

Nail on the head i reckon, the cable's loose on the pre-tensioner connector then.

If you're going to repair it yourself i recommend disconnecting the battery and leaving for about 30 minutes for static to discharge or you run the risk of setting off the tensioners and airbags.

A common fault on many cars.

Unplug and then reconnect the plug under the seat. Then stick a small cable tie around the plug and pull it tight to stop it working loose again.
