Default Seatbelt light

Lately the little seatbelt light on the gauge cluster has been staying on for no reason. I always have my seatbelt on, but the light stays on. then when i shut the truck off and open the door it's on until i close the door. anybody have this problem?

Try cleaning the buckle itself. Sometimes dirt in the latch will not allow a proper connection and makes the system think the belt is not buckled.
