Question about 1991 Toyota Camry
I have a great running 1991 Camry the only problem is the automatic moving seatbelts dont work. They move when opening or closing the door but do not give any restraint when pulled on. How can I fix this?
I had exactly the same problem and also power window problems. I found the wires in the bundle in the door jamb were broken in several places. When you open/close the door, the ends of the wires make contact intermittently and allow your seatbelt to move.
This wire bundle bends every time the door is opened, and the old, now brittle wire insulation breaks, then the copper conductor inside breaks.
You will have to take off the door panels for access.Pull the wiring out of the connector from the chassis side, pull the wires out of the feed through in the door so you have room to work, unwrap the tape and splice the wires that are broken. You will probably have to do this on both front doors since they are used so much.
Also, some of the wires may be broken inside the insulation, but the insulation looks OK:
so make sure to check for operation of seat belt/windows/doors/power locks, etc. by bending the bundle while holding the appropriate button. Otherwise you may have to do this again.
Try to buy low diameter splices because you will not have a lot of room if you splice too many in the same place (They all break in the same area)-otherwise you will have to install a new wire and splice at both ends.

Give it a "sharp" ****. A lot of the time they only respond to this type of movement to "engage". Also-there is a lever located in the center area for emergency release-you might want to check it to be sure it's pushed all the way down.
