There may be the odd exception, but the usual purpose of a seat-belt indicator lamp is to turn on if a driver's or passenger's seat appears to be occupied, but without the belt being used. The concept is that sufficient weight on a seat will activate one sensor, causing its normally-open (NO) contact to close. That contact is connected in series with a normally-closed (NC) contact in the belt retractor for that seat; these two together will enable the seatbelt light. Pulling the belt out of its retractor (after which it might as well be buckled) will open the latter contact, turning off the seatbelt light. Second and third, etc seat circuits would be connected in parallel with the first, if the first is wired as described above.
Problems that could keep a seatbelt light on would include (i) a seat cushion contact being crushed closed or (ii) the operator for the NC limit switch in the belt retractor being stuck or broken, and thus unable to open that switch.
Check out.Thanks.

I had the bank and o2 sensors changed and disconnected the battery but engine and seat belt lights are still on. Why??

And the seat belt warning light and the check engine light are two different systems. The seat belt light means one of the seat belts is not fastened if someone is sitting in the seat, or the sensor for that seat has failed.

The seat belt and air bag light stay on in my 2002Jeep Cherokee. The mechanic says the problem is the drivers side seat belt buckle. Is he correct?

He would have run a diagnostic scan of the system to decide that, so he could be right and he could be wrong.

Are you using the seatbelts?
The airbag light is on because there is a problem with the system.
PLEASE do not try to fix the airbag problem yourself.
You could accidently activate the bag and get hurt.
