    same problem, passenger side seat belt wont move to locked position when car is started.

    when i got the car a couple weeks ago, the passenger belt was set in the locked position and wouldn't move. i tried switching the fuses to see if it was a bad fuse, wasn't that. just tonight i tried to manually set the belt into the open position. i found out after opening up the inside panel, that the motor wasn't plugged into the electrical. tried to move the motor again, didn't work. so i set it back into the locked position, then i closed the passenger door and the motor moved the belt into the open position.

    now, i tried starting the car after this, and the driver side belt moved like it should, but the passenger side motor wouldn't engage the belt to the locked position.

    the motor works, the fuse is good, its plugged into the wiring.
    any thoughts?

    The passenger side shoulder belt refuses to slide down the track and lock into place. The warning light on the dash flashes continually and the chime beep-beep-beeps until it drives you up the wall. Haynes Repair Manual doesn't even mention a "belt warning control module". I can't determine whether the problem is in the module or the wiring that plugs into it. The only way to silence the beeper is to remove the module (which disables both shoulder belts) or leave the passenger door ajar (which lights up yet another warning light on the dash

The control unit is probably bad and was unplugged to stop the dinging.

    I found that if the seat belt is not seated fully in the retracted position the it won't close the two switches at the end of the track. Make sure the belt connector is at the end of it's travel

Breakers Yard is your best bet

It is a wear and tear factor on the belts and messing with them can only lead to problems with safety and testing

You will need to check the track to see where it is jamed. There might be some parts that needs to be replaced...the fuse is probably bad by this point, but get it free before replacing the fuse if it blowed.

2008 chevy uplander seat belt wont retract how do i fix it


Please check if your seat belt has "Retractors" or "Automatic Retractor".

Follow these steps to determine if you have a retractor system that will hold car seat securely or your seat belt won't retract as should be:

A. Pull belt all the way out.

b. Allow belt to retract about 6 inches (15 cm).

c. Pull out on belt again.

If belt is locked and you cannot pull the belt out any further, you have an Automatic Locking;

If you pull the belt again all the way out and won't return to normal operation, then the mechanism is damaged, but try first the "retractor" lock to be sure. By Federal Law, nobody will sale a seat belt in a junk yard, try the dealer or order thru the dealer the whole seat belt or the mechanism. I hope that is just a matter of the automatic retractor; you can see this information in your car's manual. Try and we will see.

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

1993 Nissan Altima had been rear ended. Crumple zones only had been damaged and remaining vehicle checks out. Automatic seat belts no longer retract when accessing the vehicle. How can I repair / reset...


take vehicle to the dealership, seat belts are lifetime warranty from 1987 on up, you get free working seat belts (dont mention accident at dealer).
