1990 CAMRY - Automatic shoulder belt doesn't operate

On my '90 Toyota Camry, the shoulder strap/s of the seat belt/s, (both driver's & passenger's) are supposed to ride along the window track and automatically belt you in when you start (or put in gear) the car, and neither are working. The lap belt is manual and can still be used, however, given the fact these shoulder belts don't slide to their proper position or operate I may get a ticket from the police. I need to determine HOW TO FIX THEM, is it a fuse, a relay, or just poor design flaw, and need to be replaced entirely?

Right thinking, check the fuse then the relay.that's what it is most of the time.

    Where is the fuse and relay for the auto seatbelt? I'm having the same issue with my 88 Camry.

The lap belt is enough for the police. The auto shoulder belts were an optional add on. The lap belts are the primary restraint and satisfy the seat belt requirement. That said, adding the shoulder belts make it a heck of a lot safer.

This car has a computer that controls the motor and a switch in the door that controls the computer. You will need to diagnose this properly before any parts are recommended unless you have money to burn.

Seat belt wont move


you probably need to be mechanically inclined to fix this problem. When the shoulder strap stopped working on mine the switch that is operated by the door latch had to be serviced. ie: the door will have to be taken apart to access the switch.
