Question about 2006 Cadillac CTS

1 Answer

CTS Seat Belt is Locking

In our 2006 CTS the front passenger seat belt keeps locking at the buckle. It makes it absolutely impossible to move or adjust while in the seat buckled up because it gets SO tight and won't adjust. I have to actually unbuckle it to do anything. Is this normal?? We were sold the car on the premise that the buckle just needed replaced and would be done under the warranty. Now we were told "that is just how it is" and that we would have to deal with it. I'm tired of the run-around, so I'm wondering if anyone else is having this problem or is aware of this?? Thanks!

Seat belts are never repaired, you will need to replace it,and no have never seen a complaint about this problem, there may be a recall but only the dealer would know that, it goes by the VIN of your car.

Seat belt locked in place


There is a recall on this problem, so best thing to do is go to the GM dealer and have the seat belt replaced for free under the recall notice. Good luck and hope this helps.

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

The passenger side seat belt is stuck on my 1995 toyota pick uptruck.The belt can not be used and will not move (release) ineitherdirection. Any tips?


Replace it as it is no longer safe to use even if you did get it moving again. The ratcheting/locking mechanism has gone bad.

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
