I can almost guarantee you have broken wires in the door, it is a common problem in late 80-early 90 Camry's-the breaks are in the tube that goes between the door and the body in the hinge area. Split the rubber sleve open and go through the wires, they will have breaks in them. I rewired my neighbors harness since a new one ($115) was almost impossible to find at any Toyota dealership.

I can't figure out where the black retractor for the shoulder belts gets mounted. Stock belts. I took them out, but back in?


If you are referring to the front seat passenger seat belts, the shoulder belt retractors are mounted to the floor at the base of the driver and passenger side door pillars. They are usually hidden behind the pillar trim panel and the belt comes out thru a slot in the trim piece near the swivel.

91 honda ex, passenger front seat belt is not working and the light in the dash board keeps lit, I have check the fuses for it, and all the connection to the belt and it seems all intact...any advise?


Your 1991 model Accord has automatic front retracting shoulder belts and, more than likely, the power retractor motor has gone bad on the passenger side front. If the shoulder seat belt is not in the retracted position, up close against the seat, when the car is running, the seat belt light will stay lit on your dash. Have the seat belt motor inspected and replaced if necessary.

1990 Toyota camry shoulder belt motor won't work. Where can I get an after market motor or assembly for this shoulder belt.


This car has a computer that controls the motor and a switch in the door that controls the computer. You will need to diagnose this properly before any parts are recommended unless you have money to burn.

REPAIR STUCK SHOULDER HARNESS. THE FRONT PASSENGER SHOULDER HARNESS IS STUCK AND CAN'T BE LOOSENED


I may have good news- seat belts are warrantied 'for the life of the car.'
The exceptions being: abuse (say you cut the belt), cosmetic problems (fading color), electric related problems (if your belt is stuck due to electric failure of the belt system-you would have to pay to fix electric failure) collision damage. If it's just stuck, check with a Subaru dealer, they should fix it for free, parts and labor. Good luck, let me know the outcome.

then it goes through left hand circuit breaker which is behind leftkick panel above fuse panel I think. there are 2 circuit breakers next to each other.

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

Automatic Seatbelt Inoperable


At the bottom of the pillar between the front and rear door is a round plastic plug that pops out of the plastic cover on the pillar. Inside is the electrical connection for the automatic seat belt mechanism. DISCONNECT it. Also in same hole at the bottom of the pillar is a hex head (allen wrench) bolt. Insert the proper size hex/allen wrench (six sided) into the head of the bolt and turn clockwise (if driver side) until you hear a CLICK. This will release the shoulder harness latch that is in the upper track in the window and it let's it return to the closed door and fastened belt position. DO NOT reconnect the power that you disconnected. This keeps the latch in a stationary position so you can use it manually. On the passenger side turn the hex bolt counter clockwise to release the latch and return it to the closed door position.
Now you have a shoulder harness system that is NOT automatic but it WORKS. You will have to manually latch the shoulder harness in addition to the lap belt. A TWO STEP process just like the older Toyotas. If you really want to fix the automatic system then you need to take apart the doors to get at the track and cables and motor--NOT EASY. Or you can let dealer fix for two hundred dollars each !

1990 subaru driverside seat belt will not work


the body computer runs the belt motor in response to the door open/close plunger switch. Check the instrument closter to see if it also thinks the door is open. If it thinks the door is open, fix the switch. If not, then troubleshoot the power to the belt motor drive or the motor drive itself.
