Question about 1991 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

The shoulder harness doesn't move.

This problem started after my daughter slammed the door.

    This particular model has a moving shoulder harness that travels along the door frame automatically when the door opens and closes (not the inertial type).

Slamming the door may have shaken something loose in the inertia reel assembly (the part which locks up the belt).

In most States you aren't supposed to try to repair it, which is why that does not appear in workshop manuals. It is best to fit a replacement assembly, and again in many areas this is supposed to be a new one, rather than one from a car wreckers yard (which has been crashed).

Infant car seat highlander2002

I am not familiar with the vehicle but car seats are not all made to fit any vehicle.
There are some that require just the lap belt most require an over the shoulder design. You will have to get the store to let you try a few in the vehicle until you find one that suits. I would expect a young child (baby) seat to require a 3 point over the shoulder style seat belt. especially if you are fitting the seat in the middle as this is the worst place in the event of a head on impact, unless you have full restraint. The other thing to remember is that children as they grow older may decide to take the shoulder straps off as you drive, making them more vulnerable. There are devices out there to help prevent this.
If your vehicle doesn't have a three point harness in the middle you should be able to get one fitted. Ask you Toyota dealer if there is an approved after market belt

My power door lock switch will not work

If none of the switches work on any of the doors, then it's a fuse/relay problem. If just one switch is the problem then check the power to the switch. Sometimes the wire harness becomes disconnected underneath the switch from slamming the doors. Hope this helps.

Automatic Seatbelt Inoperable

At the bottom of the pillar between the front and rear door is a round plastic plug that pops out of the plastic cover on the pillar. Inside is the electrical connection for the automatic seat belt mechanism. DISCONNECT it. Also in same hole at the bottom of the pillar is a hex head (allen wrench) bolt. Insert the proper size hex/allen wrench (six sided) into the head of the bolt and turn clockwise (if driver side) until you hear a CLICK. This will release the shoulder harness latch that is in the upper track in the window and it let's it return to the closed door and fastened belt position. DO NOT reconnect the power that you disconnected. This keeps the latch in a stationary position so you can use it manually. On the passenger side turn the hex bolt counter clockwise to release the latch and return it to the closed door position.
Now you have a shoulder harness system that is NOT automatic but it WORKS. You will have to manually latch the shoulder harness in addition to the lap belt. A TWO STEP process just like the older Toyotas. If you really want to fix the automatic system then you need to take apart the doors to get at the track and cables and motor--NOT EASY. Or you can let dealer fix for two hundred dollars each !
