Do both have the front seat side airbags?

seat belt pre-tensioner being blown on the salvage yard seats would do it. Don't know if the pre-tensioner is on the pillar or seat for the EX, but that's the common issue when swapping

Welcome to the Forum.:wave:
In addition to the above replies, sometimes the cause for that light to be on is due to a bad connection/connector under the front seat. I'm guessing you put them in an XLT (profile shows lt)?
