2009 Optima LX 75000 Miles SRS Code B1517

Got this code (B1517 Buckle Switch Driver Instability --and airbag light on in dash) from the dealer. One dealer instantly told me I need to spend $300+ on a new seatbelt, another told me to try and clean out the seatbelt (and a few other things) but that may not be the problem, and no, I did not need a new seatbelt, but he doesn't know what could be wrong.

So any easy fixes? Can I reattach some wires? new seatbelt? jiggle things? move seat? Tried many of these but no luck

New seat belt BUCKLE. Pretty easy to do, remove 4 14mm bolts securing seat to vehicle, disconnect connectors underneath, remove seat from vehicle, replace buckle.
