    Front seatbelts have locked up and will not release

  • deedees44 May 02, 2009

    Same thing on my 98 Sebring... both front seat belts are locked. For several months they would either both be locked, or both be working at the same time. Now they're just locked all the time. Dealer insists they both need to be replaced and that the mechanisms are separate. My research shows it's probably the Control Timer Module, which controls both. It's either not getting power for some reason (could be a fuse?) or a wire is disconnected somewhere. Any thoughts on this? 3 dealers all say the two seat belts are not related in any way, and yet they either work or don't, together. How can I convince someone to look at the Control Timer Module?

Your ABS light means you have a SERIOUS problem in your braking system!! Get that checked out ASAP!! you could be facing complete braking failure! seat belts are a separate issue completely. ABS means ANTILOCK BRAKE SYSTEM.

Rr.ABS and the brake lights on


CHECK TO MAKE SURE WITH CAR RUNNING VOLTAGE AT THE BATTERY SHOULD BE 13.5 VOLTS TO 14.5 VOLTS. USE A DIGITAL VOLT METER TO CHECK VOLTS AT BATTERY. WITH ENGINE OFF BATTERY VOLTAGE SHOULD BE 12.5 VOLTS. IF NOT ALTERNATOR NOT CHARGING BATTERY.THAT WILL MAKE ABS AND BRAKE LIGHTS COME ON AND A FAULTY BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH WILL ALSO CAUSE ABS AND BRAKE LIGHTS COME ON.IF ALL LOOKS GOOD.HAVE THE ABS BRAKES SCANNED.IN THIS CASE YOU ARE HAVING BRAKE FAILURE.BECAUSE WHEN BRAKE LIGHT COMES ON THATS WARNING BRAKE FAILURE BECAUSE THE BRAKE MASTER CYLINDER AND ABS UNIT IS TOGETHER AS ONE.NOT SAFE TO DRIVE.COULD LOSE BRAKE CONTROL AT ANY TIME TOW IT IN.
