I have a 1991 SL2. Both the driver's side and passenger's side automatic seatbelts stopped working a few days ago when it was particularly cold out and have not moved since. Could this simply be due to the extremely cold weather or something else? Also, any ideas on how much this may cost to fix?
The fuse panel is on the passanger side of the console next to the radio. I believe its fuse number 16. on the back of the panel cover is a diagram. If thats ok, the only other problem would be the auto seatbelt controller which is under the center console (4 phillips screws and a few chioce words and itll come out). Its a small black box with 3 plugs. If anything has been spilled in that area, itll short the board on the controller and it'll need to be replaced. any other question, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope this helps.

Re: automatic seatblets stopped working
More than likely they are both operated by the same fuse. I would recommend finding your fuse box, which is probably located under your dash; and locating that fuse. There may or may not be a piece of paper on the backside of the fuse panel cover; if there, it will tell the location of the fuses. If it is not there, I recommend buying a Haynes manual from your local parts store, as it can come in handy for many more problems. If you'd rather not spend the money, you can check all of the fuses, which would be a good idea anyway. All fuses allow you to see the element (wire) inside of it. If the element is broken, or the fuse appears smokey in color, it is busted and needs to be replaced. Hope this helped. Merry Christmas!

If both passengers and drivers side retractable belts have stopped moving, then it's likely the controller that's located under the passengers seat has gone bad. If only one side has stopped retracting and moving then that side motor has probably gone bad.
You may have to replace the seatbelt positioner.
Check with Saturn (or their replacement GM division) to find if the warranty is extended for seatbelts (some manufacturers cover seatbelts forever) 800-553-6000
I think you will find that these units fail from age and use. They are prohibitively expensive from a dealer, try saturnparts.net, I think over $400 each. But the same part was used until 1994 so you may find one at a junk yard, try 6thplanetautoparts.com. I found many available for my 94 on ebay and craigslist for under $50.00, a body shop can put them in for you but how long will a used part last?
I had a problem on a 91 Civic DX where the drivers auto seat belt
wouldnt move and the beeper would not stop.Had a blown seat belt
fuse.Replaced the fuse no more problem. The Seat belt fuses are located
under the red cover that covers the positive battery terminal. On mine
the fuse closest to the font of the car was for the drivers side auto
seat belt the one closest to the windshield is for the passager seat
belt. They are green and rated at 30A.
The front seatblet retractor springs have weakened. Unfortunatly, there are no "user serviceable parts" on them. They would have to be replaced. How many miles is on it? If you have low mileage, the Toyota Customer Experience Center may provide you some assistance, as the belt replacements are quite expensive. I'd call the CEC and explain your dilemma. Here is the number: 1-800-331-4331
if i were you i would try to make the ones from either the mark 3 supra or try the es250.. im trying to get it to work with the supra but i think your best bet is from the lexus es250. they share the same chassis obviously so most parts are interchangeable.
The fuse is in the center console, left side of passenger footwell. It is labelled PREST. for passive restraints. Possibly check the restraint module located in the center console, just under the E-brake lever.
