My electric system is going totally crazy on my 97 sebring jx. It constantly dings that seatbelt noise, it also rattles and is very bad on pot holes and rough streets, i dont know if i should get a new...


The seat belt noise issue is possibly related to the sensor box under the front seat that they are all connected to. Also controls the airbag light and 'ding' warning for that. Cost is about $300-$400 to replace.

97 Chrysler Seabring Conv. 2.5 L eng. Seabelts (driver and pasenger) lock up and you can't pull them out to buckle. both seats at the same time. Fuses check out o.k. Local shops don't want to deal...


It sounds like a problem with the seatbelt retractors and/or timer modules to me. The seat belt retractors and timer modules are seviced only as an assembly and probably need to be replaced. The only place to purchase new units is the dealer. It may be difficult to find a dealer that can get them for you on a 14-year-old car. I have ordered replacements that old before, but had to settle for belts that didn't match the color of the original belts because that was all that was available. You will have even further difficulty because the seat belts in the convertible are different from all the other Sebrings. The seat itself must be disassembled for repair once new seat belt retractors are located.

You'll have to remove the trim on the side of the car in order to access the seat belt tensioner. You can adjust it with a screw driver and retract it back..

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

Your ABS light means you have a SERIOUS problem in your braking system!! Get that checked out ASAP!! you could be facing complete braking failure! seat belts are a separate issue completely. ABS means ANTILOCK BRAKE SYSTEM.
