Just purchased a 1993 Legacy sedan 5 speed and I love it. Everything seems to work great except the automatic seatbelt and the radio. Also, the little seatbelt light constantly blinks at me. The dashboard lights work, but there's no power to the radio. The fuses appear OK. The automatic seatbelts are in the overhead position and have to be used manually, with the emergency release. I would love the fix these. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Re: Automatic seatbelts and radio do not work
There is a tester that allows the technician to check the different parts of the systems for parts failure, if you want to fix it then your best bet is to go to a dealer for repair.

The 1993 Dodge transmissions could be found in the Caravan, Colt,
Dakota, Daytona, Dynast, Intrepid, Ran Van, Ram Wagon, Ram Charger,
Shadow, Spirit, Stealth, Viper and W150. Each had a unique array of
transmissions best suited for the model's design.
In 1993, the Dodge transmissions varied between 3- and 6-speeds. A
3-speed automatic transmission was available, and there was a variant
that included overdrive. The only other automatic transmission included
4-speeds. A 5-speed manual gearbox found its way into several of the
1993 Dodge models, and a 6-speed manual was equipped in the Viper.
The number of speeds and style of transmission may have looked the same
on paper, but it did not mean they were all the same. An automatic
transmission in a passenger sedan could be geared drastically different
from one in a truck. Transmissions may have the same number of speeds,
but they may not be geared identically.
Transmissions were used in the 1993 Dodge to effectively transfer power
from the engine to the wheels of the vehicle. The power could be passed
to the front or rear wheels. Models equipped with all- and
four-wheel-drive had power at all four-wheels.
