1991 Camry seat belt

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.

Whenever I open or close the doors the automatic seatbelts do not move. The seatbelts aren't a good position to be "Stuck" in. Please help?


they are worn out, nearly 20 years old and that stuff happens. the cost to buy new ones is more than the value of the car, if you can even find them. replacement seat belts for 91-95 saturns were over 400 dollars for each side and that was 5 years ago.

More than likely, you have a broken wire or two between the body and the driver side front door. This is a very common issue with those cars when tey get older.

What do i do?


there is a cable that the auto-seatbelt pulls and pushes from...after a while the cable gets worked into the groove and gets itself jammed and then burning up the motor that operates it. Some of the older Ford Escorts have the same problem. i haven't seen a Colt Vista's door but on the Escort i saw the slot in which the cable moved the seat-belt from the top after i removed the plastic cover. I immediately saw where it was jammed..shoved it in with a screw driver. then i removed the cover where the motor was (near the floor behind the driver's seat) and i manually cranked it to the closed position. The seat-belt was capable of being undone like a normal seat belt at the top. so i had to do that and clasp the bottom lap belt by hand for the lifetime of that car. i could have made it operational so it can jam up again but just kept it sationary to prevent that. At least i wouldn't get a ticket for no seatbelt. hope this helps.

I have a 1989 Toyota Camry and am having difficulty with driver seat belt activation. What sensor or component tells the seatbelt to activate? Where is it located?


I have a 1990 camry and my driver side belt stopped working too. The problem is the wires that run from the door to inside the vehicle. Open your door, look in the doorjam for the black rubber piece. The wires inside it bend every time you open and close your door and eventually break. The only solution is to cut the rubber and resplice the wires which is a big pain in the ***. It took me a few frustrating hours, but, I heard it's easier if you take the door off. I left a lengthy amount of wire, wrapped in electrical tape, behind the front quarter panel to prevent it from bending again. This is a very common problem with camrys of these years.

1991 CIVIC LX AUTOMATIC SEATBELTS NOT WORKING.


I had a problem on a 91 Civic DX where the drivers auto seat belt wouldnt move and the beeper would not stop.Had a blown seat belt fuse.Replaced the fuse no more problem. The Seat belt fuses are located under the red cover that covers the positive battery terminal. On mine the fuse closest to the font of the car was for the drivers side auto seat belt the one closest to the windshield is for the passager seat belt. They are green and rated at 30A.

Seat belt does not move when i opn the door


If only one seat belt does not move when you open door then check the pink wire in the rubber boot passing from the door panel to the cabin around the door hinge, however if it is both seat belts that don't move when their respective doors are opened, the problem is in a little box located right under the hand brake lever, behind the shift lever, of course you have to remove some of the decor to get to it.
