Have the same problem in my 98 Toyota Rav4. I squirted the female buckle (bolted to seat, not holding strap harness) with wannabe WD-40 lubricant from the $1 store, and it seem to have solved the problem. I'm guessing the spring mechanism is worn out, which is why the harness buckle won't lock. Another solution is to replace the female lock buckle with an identical part from the used parts junkyard store.

The seatbelt light on the dash stays "on," even when everyone has their belt on, but I don't bother servicing that. If yours have an audible alarm instead of an indicator light on the dash, locate the source of the alarm sound and disconnect the wires to silence the sound.

There is a pinging sound in my van until I reach 15 miles per hour then it goes off by itself. Sometimes it just keeps pinging while I am idling at a stop light. How do I turn this irritating sound off?


You have either a broken switch inside your seatbelt buckle, or you're not wearing it. Thats a reminder to buckle up. if you are wearing your seatbelt have the buckle switch checked.

Even after I buckle my seatbelt the chime still goes off and my car does not recognize it is buckled. Please tell me which fuse I need to take or what to do and dont tell me to check my manual and follow...


Try looking for a wire that connects to the seat belt somewhere under the seat it could have become disconnected or cut. Also try taping the fastener with something like a hammer maybe a bit of WD-40 cause something might be sticking inside the fastener.

Thanks

Is there a passcode or sequence to disable the


As far as I know that seat belt warning chime and light is there for your safety and protection, it should not be bypassed in any way.
There is no by pass seqwuence or code to eliminate this safety device.
Buckle up, its the law.

Rear seatbelt stuck behind head rest in locked position


haha we know you didnt do it on purpose, without seeing your problem and the hard to describe issue, i can only recommend to maybe try folding the seat to the cargo position, if that helps. if not, then you will more than likely need to disassemble the rear quarter panel, and unbolt the seat belt retractor from the body of the vehicle. sorry but there is no other way

Seatbelt on 2007 ford fusion


It is a safety latch that is doing it's job.

If you wreck the car the belt stops preventing you from hitting the dash or going through the windshield.

Try this test to make sure they work:
Get in the car and start it,

Put your foot on the brake, and put the seatbelt on -

Now yank on the shoulder part real hard if it doesn't stop immediatly you should get it replaced.
