Lock and unlock Ford Seatbelts when using a baby car seat

When putting a car seat into any Ford vehicle you can ensure that your child is securely fastened by simply pulling the seatbelt all the way out to it's limit of travel. Then allow the seat belt to retract automatically to a snug fit over the car seat hooks. You will notice as it retracts that it makes a clicking sound. This ratcheting action when manually activated this way will lock the seat belt firmly into the baby's safety seat providing asecure restraint. It's so easy to do and it could save a childs life!

security light flashing


I have this problem if I jump in and start the car too quickly. It will shut off and the security light flashes. Thankfully it never happens when I'm on the road! I think it's related to the seatbelt switch. There's a wire under the driver seat connected to a sensor in the seatbelt buckle that tells the computer when the seatbelt is fastened. I tried spraying WD-40 into the seatbelt buckle to clean it, which helped, but it is still loose and intermittent. When it happens the remote won't do anything to get the car unlocked and started. I just have to wait ten minutes for the security system to reset itself.

fastening seat belts is not always the answer as some sensors need weight to cancel the light after the seatbelt is fastened. best have it checked out by an auto electrician as the seats may have been changed and the wiring not properly connected.
