Was the battery disconnected when you swapped the seats? If not, then that's why the air bag light is on. You can't disconnect any of the SRS (supplemental restraint system) wiring harnesses while there's power to the will set off a fault for whichever harness was disconnected.

SRS harnesses must be disconnected & reconnected while the car is powered down to NOT get an air bag light illuminated. You'll have to go to dealer to get it reset if you don't have an SRS reset tool.
