I am currently deployed, and am trying to get info and pics needed to help my fiance get the issue repaired. the driver belt is starting to slip and squel when starting. i believe, it may be starting to wear, or the pump may need to be adjusted, again me being in Iraq, i cant help her. but at the same time i dont want her going to a shop and being taken for a fool. please any help would be usefull, thank you

DTC B0058 Right Front/Passenger Pretensioner Deployment Loop Open.
The passenger seat belt pretensioner deployment loop consists of a seat belt pretensioner-RF and the seat belt pretensioner-RF high and low circuits. A shorting bar used within the seat belt pretensioner connector shorts together both the seat belt pretensioner high and low circuits when the connector is disconnected. This will help to prevent unwanted deployment of the pretensioner during servicing. During a frontal crash of sufficient force the inflatable restraint sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) will allow current to flow through the deployment loop in order to deploy the seat belt pretensioner. The SDM performs continuous diagnostic tests on the deployment loops to check for proper circuit continuity and for shorts to ground or voltage. If a malfunction is detected, a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) will be stored in memory.
DTC B0084 Left Front/Driver Seat Position Sensor Circuit
The inflatable restraint seat position sensor (SPS) is used to determine the proximity of a front driver or passenger seat position with respect to the frontal air bag. The SPS interfaces with the sensing and diagnostic module (SDM). The state of the SPS allows the SDM to disable stage 2 of the frontal air bag for a front seat that is forward of a forward/rearward point in seat track travel. The SPS is a hall effect sensor that is mounted on the inside seat track of both the driver and passenger seats. The seat track includes a metal bracket that shunts the SPS magnetic circuit creating 2 states of seat position. The shunted state represents a rearward seat position. The non-shunted state represents a forward position. The SPS provides 2 current ranges, one range for the shunted state and a second range for a non-shunted state. These 2 states are inputs to the SDM. State 1 (shunted) being the rearward threshold and state 2 (non-shunted) being the forward threshold. When the SDM receives input from a SPS that state 1 threshold is reached (seat is rearward) the SDM will not disable stage 2 deployment, if required by the deployment sensors. When state 2 threshold is reached (seat is forward) the SDM will disable stage 2 deployment on the side the seat is forward. The SDM monitors the SPS circuit and if a fault is detected the SDM will set codes B0083 or B0084 and defaults to disabling stage 2 frontal deployment. This will only default on the side of the vehicle the sensor has a fault. Its important to understand that the SPS is secondary to the passenger presence system (PPS) and the manual instrument panel (I/P) module disable switch. If either one of these devices are in the disable mode the passenger air bag will not deploy regardless of the SPS status.
You should take this to a qualified repair Shop ! Takes special tools to test .
First thing to check is see if the belt is slipping.. .If so is belt loose ? test by pushing down. Excess movement = loose solution = tighten. Does it slip on engine tickover ..or when engine is revved?
It's probably time to replace the belt. As the belt gets older, it stretches and a "glaze" forms on the belt. These two things together contribute to the belt slipping. The squeal you hear is the belt actually slipping on the pulleys.
There is a very good chance the belt that drives the power steering pump,is slipping.When it slips,you loose the power steering effect and it makes it hard to turn.It will slip under load.i.e when turning.Check the fluid level and belt.Replace belt if need be.I think this will be the problem.The squeeling is the belt slipping.Hope this helps you
Belt squeel is usually from a belt that is to loose and the pulley is slipping against the rubber creating the "squeel".
You will need to locate the belt tensioner and tighten it until you get a 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch vertical flex of the belt at the center point between the pulley's.
If you took all the belts off the car wouldn't start!!!! You may have taken off one belt (it appears tha't not the cause) Chances are its not the belt but an actuall pully from one of your accessories (power steering, alternator, AC compressor etc..) while the car is running (and be careful of loose clothing and hair) see if you can get your ear close the squealing and narrow it down. This will help pinpoint the problem.
The right side of the car are where the belts are located. Start by checking their tension and inspecting them for cracks and/or glazing, this would be a sign of slippage. Older belts are not as pliable and will stiffen significantly after cooling, causing a squeel. While the belts are off, spin the pulleys of the alternator, power steering pump, water pump and AC compressor clutch. They should all spin freely with very little to no resistance and no noticeable bearing noise. If there is a 'grinding' feel to any of them as you spin them, it's possible that particular component is failing and causing the belts to slip.
