The seat belts have small airbag like devices in them in the retractor mechanism. These go off like airbags when you are in a crash to ensure you stay tightly in your seat. Think of it like what happens if you pull the seat belt too quickly and it stops movement. You will need to replace the whole seat belt unit if this is the case.

There is a gas cylinder that tightens the belt in a minor collision, it is a one time use part it is independent of the air bag deployment system, you will have to replace the seat belt gas cylinder, that may mean a new belt assembly, not sure on focus.

Take it to a dealer and get it fixed. Do not mess with airbag sensors on your own if it deploys you can be seriously injured.

How do i reset my deployed headrest in my crystler 200 i was rear ended


There is no resetting a deployed airbag. The air bag module must be replaced and the airbag control module will need replacing along with the seatbelt pre-tensioners.

Two questions has this car been in a collision, did the airbags deployed, is the seatbelt not retracting. This is a serious problem if you have a collision there will be no protection

How to Reset airbag light


  • Most likely you replaced the clock spring and air bag module right? Well when the srs deploys you also have seatbelt pre-tensioners that are part of the whole retractor assembly and cannot be repaired. Ie either side retractors are not working right , then you need to replace according to chrysler corp.

2006 honda accord seatbelt deployed and now my srs light is on how can I reset


If you're talking about the airbag, (seat belt deployed makes no sense,) you have to have the dealership replace the airbag and charge before it will pass inspection...

They'll clear the SRS light.

Do the airbags and seatbealt deploy in a accident if you dont apply brakes?


Yes, absolutely if the ignition key is turned in "ON" position!
No matter if you apply or not the car brakes, the airbags and seatbelts deploy in a accident if the ignition key is turned in "ON" position. The Airbag system is completely independent from the brake system.
