Question about 1991 Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

I have a 91 Jetta that requires the shoulder belt to be buckled in order to crank the car. I unhooked the belt when i got out, and when I got back in I hooked it back up, but when I tried to crank the car it's as if it ain't reading that the belt is hooked. It won't crank. I need suggestions on what to do.

See if the wire to the belt has come off or apart.

I would cut the two wires going to the seat belt buckle and twist them together. sounds like it needs a new buckle anyway so cutting the wires isn't going to ruin anything

2001 vw passat, seat belt chime stays on, and if you turn on the headlights, sound is a continuous buzzing. Any ideas how to fix?


Yes, the same way I did. Locate the wire in the buckle that sends the signal and unhook it. My jetta did the same thing. A friend that had a similar problem with his chevy found the wire was one piece with no connections, he found the little speaker for the chime and cut the wire. One method or the other, both worked, Grim

I have a 2008 Ford Fusion and the seat belt chime goes off all the time even if the seat belt is worn. How do I fix that?


This veh has an airbag system and that lamp system is part of it. It is not recommended for one without the proper training to attempt to diagnose or repair due to the danger of setting off the airbags.
It needs to be scanned by a shop that has a scanner that is capable of scanning the RCM (Airbag System)system.

Chances are the seat belt buckle switch is bad or switch is unhooked. that would require replacement or re-connection.
if you try and look at it for connection be sure and unhook the neg battery cable and wait about 15-20 min for the back reserves to deplete in the RCM.

Remove seat belt


Hi Ray, Removal of the seat belts requires removal of the seats. Adjust the front seats to the fully backwards position and remove the fixing bolts and then unhook rails at the rear.You will notice a wire cable attached to each seat used to adjust the belt shoulder hight. This must also be disconnected. On later model vehicles there is an automatic retraction unit which pulls the driver and or passenger back into the seat in the event of the air bags being deployed. These connections must also be removed. If seats are electrically operated unplug all connectors. Remove seats and then gently remove plastic door pillar covers. (These are in two pieces for each front belt.) Removal will leave the fixing bolts of retractable part of the seat belt exposed. The buckle side is fixed with one bolt and has an electrical connection which must be disconnected. Hope this is of help? Regards John

How to remove a back seat from 02 toyota avensis


Hi, peel the cover from around the seat frame so that the shoulder strap hold the cover on to the seat.

Extend the set belts to their maximum length and recline the seat as far as possible.

Looking at the seat from the front, put your hand in the gap between the reat of the seat (bit that reclines) and the fromt of the fixed base (by the red dome and the instructions).

On the bit of the seat that reclines there is a 'door' that opens to reveal a metal clasp that the ends of the shoulder straps fix to at the top and the ****** belt at the bottom.

Unhook the looks from the shoulder straps from the metal clasp.

Pull the shoulder straps through the back of the seat upright. You can now pull them through the cover which is free for you to wash.


Thank you.

Is there a way to turn off the beeping noise that happens when the seat belt is not buckled on a 2007 Tundra?


Easiest and smartest way would be to buckle your safety belt:)

If your like my grandmother and swear that it will keep you stuck in your vehicle when you need to get out fast, then you can unhook the pressure sensor in the drivers seat that recognizes when there is weight on the seat and no seat belt buckled.

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

These engines are identified as an interference engine and on no account must the crank shaft and cam shaft be moved with the timing belt removed. You no not need to remove the water pump. You need to remove the water pump pulley only (not the water pump). I trust this helps.

Seatbelt on 2007 ford fusion


It is a safety latch that is doing it's job.

If you wreck the car the belt stops preventing you from hitting the dash or going through the windshield.

Try this test to make sure they work:
Get in the car and start it,

Put your foot on the brake, and put the seatbelt on -

Now yank on the shoulder part real hard if it doesn't stop immediatly you should get it replaced.
