    I have the exact same problem, I popped the plastic cap off the seat to have a look at it.....the belt wound up all messy and I think this caused the problem....I have no clue how to get it to release.

So after completely tearing the seat apart I found 2 wires going up to the seat belt mechanism from under the seat, these wires got caught in the seat mechanism underneath and were shredded. There must be a small solenoid inside the seat belt mechanism because I could hear it click after I repaired the wires(this circuit is live even with the ignition off) Im not sure how it all works but this solved my problem.

SOURCE: how do you adjust doors on a 2007 2500 extended cab dodge

If the door is not latching properly, a torx drive bit will fit into the latch pin itself and you can move it a little further outward. If the door is sagging (don't quote me on this, i'm not real familiar with the model), you may be able to loosen the hinges and lift the door, you may have to replace the hinge pins, or the hinge altogether.

My 99 dodge pu seat belts are stuck in.will they come out?what **** designed this? bill

If the belt release will not release the belt and you want to replace the belt itself there are some bolts that need to come out at all points of restraint and then replace. You can crack open the belt case (where it latches) and force a manual release on the belt. Then replace the case and the guts so it does not lock again. Good luck.

1997 Dodge 2500 4 wheel drive pickup - Both Front seat belts will not release. Stuck in retracted position. Fasten seat belt light is on... Both problems occurred at same time.

Seat belts lock up when the belt is pulled on as the pendulum is rocking, and it could have been released at this time on a hill. This would make the belt lock up. But it should not do that when it is coiled up as the spool is full and the lock is pushed out of the way. You may have to force it to release by pulling and jerking on the belt as you are standing out side of the truck, not moving! Use a flash light to check the pocket for debris....
