They have deployed the seat belt tensioners! These are similar to the detonator on the airbags! You will have to replace the detonators and probably reset the dash lights too!

Seatbelts locked after wreck

It is possible that the belt is locked from the crash which activated the reel lock pin. The only way will be to replace the whole unit including the gas container.

Stuck sealtbelt hyundai sonata

The best advice in the case of seatbelts that are 'stuck' in a vehicle that's been involved in a crash is to REPLACE IT. A belt that's been used when in a crash is almost certain to have suffered webbing stretch and component stress. It's not possible to test the webbing to see whether or not it's safe without destroying it, so best advice, simply buy a new one! Good luck!

I bought a pontiac g6 in which it was wrecked and the drivers side air bag deployed. now the seatbelts are locked up what do i need to do to fix it.

There is a mechanism in the seat belt spool that locks the belt in a crash. They can bend the spool and lock the belt so you'll probably have to replace the spool.

I hit a ditch and both my airbags deployed and now i cant move my seat belts

inside your seatbelts there are small explosives known as pre-tensioners, when you crash these pre tensioners go off and pull you back into the seat as part of the SRS( supplemented restraint system) which means that aswel as new airbags you also need new seatbelts for your car.

How do i unlock my seat belts on my 2006 malibu after car accident

You can't unlock the seatbelts. They have an explosive charge built in that goes off like an airbag, locking up the belts on impact. You will have to replace all your locked up seatbelts.

Seatbelt issues

It is not safe if the seat belts are hooked to the original chassis points, in a crash there will be 1000's of pounds pulling on these, the mounting may tear the body metal and cause serious injury, I would strongly recommend you fix the original system, how much is your well being worth in a crash?

Seat belts

These seatbelts are the non-locking type. They only lock when there is a sudden change in the vehicles forward momentum.
