Automatic Seatbelt not working properly

I have a 1992 Saturn SL2 and both passenger and driver's shoulder strap unlocks from the "B" pillar and only moves slightly on the roof track and stops. It seems like it is trying to work but not moving all the way to "A" pillar to exit and enter the car.

Underneath the console is a black box with 3 plugs that controls the auto seatbelt operation. The housing on mine was busted and coffee got spilled on the console and got into the controller. Mine did the same thing until i replaced the controller. You can get them at a junkyard fairly cheap. I hope this helps. If you have other questions, you can email me

I think you will find that these units fail from age and use. They are prohibitively expensive from a dealer, try, I think over $400 each. But the same part was used until 1994 so you may find one at a junk yard, try 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?

Automatic seatbelt doesnt work

if neither ther passenger or the driver seatbelt work it is a fuse. if not it is as simple as changing the door switch. if you dont see a visible door switch it is actually in the door and you should notice a door ajar light in the dash if the switch isn't working.

The seatbelt is automatic 1995 ford escort stopped working could it be a motor issue or broken belt pully is easly fixed

The automatic retracting shoulder strap track is available only as a complete assembly with the motor and switches. The last time I got one of these I went through the dealer. There is also an outfit that specializes in obsolete and hard to find Ford parts. here is their web address:

Seatbelt shoulder won't work

Seatbelts are warrantied for the 'life of the car'. Exceptions would be abuse (say you cut it), or if it is controlled by an electric system that is in need of repair. Check with a Saturn dealer, labor and parts should be covered if it has failed, let me know how you make out.

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

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 !

Automatic seat belt removal and replace with regular seat belts

You'd need to pickup the need parts at the junkyard. You'll need the "A" to "B" pillar trim, lower "B" pillar trim, front seat belts and seatbelt giude from a 1995 SC1 or SC2.

The treaded hole in the frame of the car where the track of the automatic seatbelt assembly attaches is in a slightly different place than the three point system. Its not a problem though. You just need to drill a 3/4" hole slightly above the existing hole in the trim panel. The existing hole is hidden by the seatbelt and not noticable at all.

Everything else pretty much bolts or snaps into place.

I've done this swap on several 1991-1994 Saturn S-Series.

Saturn sc 2 seatbelt fuse

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.
