1991 Toyota Camry Automatic seatbelt harness

On my 1991 Toyota Camry, the automatic seat belt harness does not retract properly??
Here is the Scenario: When sitting in the drivers seat with the seat belt harness in its secure mode (against chest) works normal. Once stopped and ignition off and key removed, the seat belt harness will only retract when the door is just cracked open , if the door is opened farther it stops retracting, if you close the door it will start to retract again. I ohm'ed out all of the wires in the door...that I could get to and they all have good continuity, even when the door is move to closed position.
Question: What switches the seat belt to retract? Where is the switch?
Pasanger side works normal

I would say its the door jam sensor telling your car the door is open is shorting out causing it to not create a connection when all the way released

Seat belt Driver's side


I would definitely recommend to replace the seat belt assembly... The only way to know for sure that the seat belt will work properly in the event of a crash is to replace it... Even if you do repair it so it winds back there is no guarantee the repair will hold when you really need it to...

Retractable seat belt wont close


Is this a NEW seat belt?  Or a junkyard part... Per the Toyota 1988 Repair Manual - the belt is allowed to be pulled out at a tile of 15 degrees or less; and cannot be pulled out at over 45 degrees of tilt.

Your problem is the belt is not retracting.  The manual states to replace the assembly.  It also states: "Whenver installing a new belt assembly, verify proper operation before installation."

If a new part does not have proper operation; have it replaced. If this is a 'used'  new part - get a NEW seat belt.
