Could be the switch or the seat belt relay (74-76 cars [thanks DD]).

When the car does not start there is an easy test. On the engine relay board, remove the top plastic piece of the T-12 wire connector (wires closest to the trunk [see Haynes Manual]), you should see a yellow wire that goes to the starter. There should also be a large red wire there too. Take a small jumper wire and briefly touch the red wire to the yellow wire. If the starter starts, then the problem is fwd of the relay board (i.e. starter is OK)

Good luck.
