87 Grand Am Seat Belt Locked

The passenger seat belt in my 1987 Pontiac Grand Am is locked! It only comes out a little bit but not enough that anybody may wear it. Anyone ever had this problem? Or does anyone know how to fix it? Thank you!

I own a 87 grand am and this happens to the rear seatbelts and if this is happening on the rear seatbelts you have to push the belt in farther then try pulling it out. The problem being belt keeps getting twisted in the belt roller if the makes sence

If your seat belt is in the door, start slamming your door after you are inside the car and this will activate the tensioner that holds the seat belt in place. This will not always work ,just cross your fingers.

SOURCE: kia sedona front passenger seat stuck in forward position

Electric or manual??? If electric one of the motors has gone out. If the kids were playing with it they may have held the button down causing the motor to spin while the seat was all the way foward and it will just burn the motor up after so long. Also the switch could be bad. Unfortunatley being that its power there is no way to manually move the seat back without the motor turning or removing the seat and spinning the motor sprocket by hand...

SOURCE: Our Driver Seat Heaters and passenger seat will turn on for 2 sec

When this was happening on my Envoy it ended up being the seat heaters control module that was going out. About $600 a seat on mine. Just wish my repair center found that out before they replaced the seat heaters twice.

The rear drivers side passenger seat in my Mercedes 2004 ml350 is stuck down...how do get it to come back up. very little room to work


Not an easy task. You likely have one of 2 problems. If center seat belt is in the seat that is down, it may be locked. If so, you need to remove the seat back cover then the seat belt retractor. You can then position the seat belt retractor upright (how it sits when the seat is up) and pull the seat belt out making slack to raise the seat. This only happens if the either the stop on the seat belt is broken or the seat belt guide on the seat back is broken. If that's not the problem, you likely have a release cable that has come loose under the seat. If you look at the half that works, you can determine what you need to move on the locked seat and try to get to it with a long tin screwdriver or similar implement.

Seat belt locked


You will need to cut the best and replace it. Seat belts are not repaired, just replaced. Safety and liability issues

I was in a wreck with my 1999 pontiac grand am gt v6 was not wearing my seat belt. should my air bags of deployed?


It really depends on the type of wreck you were in. Your seat belt being on or off does not have anything to do with whether or not the airbags would be deployed.
If they were not deployed it means that your car will not be labeled as totaled, which is a good thing.

I have a 2001 pontiac sunfire, and the passengers seat belt is in a locked position and will not let me buckle up. There is NO slack what so ever. I took the seat belt out and went and got another one from...


there is a weight in the base of the seat belt lock that may be stuck. take the cover loose and see if you can push the weight toward the rear of the car. if this works see if there is a chance that the belt lock is leaning forward when tight. when you hit your brakes these weights slide forward and lock the belt they should be tilted the the rear ever so slightly so they return when the car "leans back" hope this helps.

Stuck seat belt


Remove the panels to the belt, normally these can miss roll and get stuck. Unbolt the unit so you can get some slack that should be enough to release and pull it back out to correct it. If that will not do it get a replacement from a junkyard and replace.
