I have had this happen to another vehicle that I own. It is the retractor that is defective. Being that it is part of a safety issue and assuming that it not defective due to abuse then you can take it to your local dealership and it will be covered reguardless of year or mileage. As an example. Mine was a 1988 prelude and the belt wouldnt retract back. The dealership changed it out in 2002 even though the car had almost 175k on the speedo and it didnt cost me a dime.

Passenger seat belt locks tight in place all the time. Passenger can't move.


check to see if the electrical connection is connected at the base of the seatbelt (most newer cars have these and they lock the belts down forever in case of an accident) if this is connected then i would say you need to replace the belt

2004 TrailBlazer: seat belt of passenger side can not pull out in tr...


I'm having the same problem. I unbolted the nut at the bottom of the seat and it allowed it to work again ... for the time being. I'm attempting to remove the 'assembly' and perhaps find a broken part, but at the present time, I can't tell how to get it out of the seat-back. The dealer says parts are not available for it, so I'm trying to locate a used one in a junk yard or buy one from an after-market supplier. tburnett@windstream.net

Is the belt twisted? If you pull it all the way out it will engage the child lock. If the child lock is engaged and the belt is twisted, you have to try to feed the belt back in far enough to disable the child lock

Airbag light flashes 5-1 5-1 5-1 as long as the key is on


The way I solved my problem with the airbag indicator light is: I took the passenger side seat belt at full retraction and slowly pulled it out until it reached the stop several times and each time allowing the seat belt to fully retract to its normal position. Apparently there are foreign debris (dust, lint, loose hair, etc.) that is interferring with the sensor response and triggering the indicator to come on. All the seat belts in the vehicle (no matter what brand) should be exercised/cleaned periodically to eliminate this problem. Also, as you pull the seat belts out until it reaches its stop to wipe with a lint free cloth as it extends and retracts. Keep in mind that it could be another kind of problem. This solution has worked for me several times.

How do we fix front passenger side seat belt retractor on 1999 Ford Taurus? It will not pull out....


you may have to remove the bolt that holds the buckle to the floor. Try to push the belt into the retractor and see if it frees up.

I assume you are saying it is in the locked mode. It has an automatic lock mode for holding a child seat. When the belt is pulled all the way out, it goes into locking mode. You will hear it ratchet when the belt starts going back in.



Section 01-20A: Restraints, Active 1999 Taurus, Sable Workshop Manual
DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Safety Belt, Lap/Shoulder The dual locking mode retractor on the shoulder belt portion of the combination lap/shoulder safety belt for the front seat passenger and rear seat outboard passengers operates in two ways:
  1. In the vehicle sensitive (emergency locking) mode, the shoulder belt retractor will allow the occupant freedom of movement, locking tight only on hard braking, hard cornering or impacts of approximately 8 km/h (5 mph) or more. The front and rear outboard seat belt retractors can also be made to lock by pulling/jerking on the belt.
  1. In the automatic locking mode, the shoulder belt retractor will be automatically locked and remain locked when the combination lap/shoulder safety belt is buckled and does not allow the occupant freedom of movement. This mode provides tight lap/shoulder belt fit on the occupant and on a child safety seat or infant carrier installation restraint.
  1. When the combination lap/shoulder belt is unbuckled and allowed to retract completely, the retractor will switch to the vehicle sensitive (emergency) locking mode.
sxh~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif WARNING: REAR-FACING INFANT SEATS SHOULD NEVER BE PLACED IN THE FRONT SEATS.
The automatic locking mode must be used when installing a child safety seat on the front passenger seat and rear outboard seats where dual locking retractors are provided

Sounds like the belt is twisted inside the retractor you will have to pull all the way out to straighten. if you feel it locking into place then it is a bad belt
