Something is wrong with the airbag, either it's not plugged in or something. When something is wrong with the air bag and the light comes on, it automatically turns the seatbelt light on, it's telling you to make sure you wear your seatbelt because something is wrong with the airbag.

How would you troubleshoot this? Where do you start?

First step is to find a SIR/airbag capable scanner and get codes.
But remember air bags can save your life or kill you in a split second.
Unless you are trained on working on them it is best left to a pro that is.
Good Luck
