fastening seat belts is not always the answer as some sensors need weight to cancel the light after the seatbelt is fastened. best have it checked out by an auto electrician as the seats may have been changed and the wiring not properly connected.
Probably no need to see an expensive mechanic. My seat belt warning light came on a few days ago when there were four people in the car and the rear seat belts weren't fastened (I thought that was why it lit up). However, the light came on and stayed on when I was the only person in the car. Logically, it suggested a bad connection somewhere, so I checked the connector under the passenger seat and made sure it was properly fastened together. I then sprayed a small amount of WD40 into the female clasps of both front seat belt connectors, clipped and unclipped the belts a few times and the light is now fine. Try it - it worked for my 2003 Escape.
Remove the panels to the belt, normally these can miss roll and get stuck. Unbolt the unit so you can get some slack that should be enough to release and pull it back out to correct it. If that will not do it get a replacement from a junkyard and replace.
Push lower end of rear seat back to unlock clips (takes a bit of effort) Lift bench out Should be clips or bolts holding the top of the rear seat - release these Push up on the upper section of seat to release top clips. in some car models Remove the 10mm bolt behind the bench near the seat belt fastening sight and then lift the seat up from the back to the front..towards the front seats. The clips are angled down and in so that the back has to lift up first. This will help. Thanks please keep updated. please please do rate the solution positively

Seat belts lock up when the belt is pulled on as the pendulum is rocking, and it could have been released at this time on a hill. This would make the belt lock up. But it should not do that when it is coiled up as the spool is full and the lock is pushed out of the way. You may have to force it to release by pulling and jerking on the belt as you are standing out side of the truck, not moving! Use a flash light to check the pocket for debris....
I just solved the problem for a stuck rear center seat belt in my 2002 Jetta.
Flip the base seat cushion forward against the front seat backs. Trace down along the belt to its tether point on the floor. The belt is sewn around a steel loop. The loop is anchored to a black steel hook. A thin silvery retainer plate is spring tensioned on top of the loop to prevent it from sliding off of the hook when the seat back is folded.
Therefore, you need to press the silvery retainer plate away from the hook (push up) to allow the loop to be slid from the hook. The belt was tight with the seat back in the upright position, so it was necessary to fold the seat back forward to create slack in the belt. Now push the belt loop towards the trunk and slide it off of the end of the hook (only possible with the retainer plate pushed up out of the way).
Now with total release of tension on the system via the bottom end of the seat belt being untethered and with the seat back returned to the upright position, normal extension and retraction of the belt will be reestablished. Next, simply extend the seat belt and slide the loop back into place over the floor hook. It snaps past the silvery retainer plate without all the effort required to hold the plate up during removal of the loop during disassembly.
Check again, the seat belt should be extending and retracting properly. Now just put the seat cushion back into regular position and you will be able to safely buckle up three people across the back seat.
It took about as long to do this repair as it has taken to post this answer to the problem. Note, the seat belt safety mechanism only allows normal extension and retraction of the belt when the seat back is upright.
Hi Xit.....The factory XM module is in fact located under the rear shelf trim panel. You will have to remove the rear seat cushion, just pull up on the front of the cushion about 12 inches in from left and right corners. Remove the cushion from the car. Open the trunk and remove nuts located on the seat back just under rear shelf metal. Back inside the rear seat area, remove the seat belt buckle bolts located inboard of right and left lower corners of the seat back. Remove the seat back. You will now be able to see the (2) plastic fir tree pins that hold the shelf panel trim in place. Remove the pins.
Now comes the hard part, remove the right and left quarter sail interior trim panels ( Caution: roof rail air bag located behind right and left panels) the fasteners are located behind the "SIR" plastic buttons in the sail panel trim.
All in all, unless you have the proper tools and take the proper precautions, you might want to take your Cadillac to your local dealer.
Buy the way, is there something wrong with your factory XM module?
Let me know, regards.
