Sounds like the sensor in the seat is going bad.

You can get a unit of ebay to turn that light off. Its nothing to worry about these e46's have this common problem, the sensor is underneath the seat and goes faulty. Quick and cheap fix is to just buy the unit of ebay to turn the light off or you can go the expensive way and get the part from the dealers.
