    No they are not, if you move the belt roller away from the vehicle 4 inches and give it a sharp tug it works fine, attach it to the metal body of the vehicle and they dont lock, it seems to be something to do with magnatism. In the UK and Europe belts have to work to pass the MOT/ITV and these were fine then stopped working, keep trying!

These seatbelts are the non-locking type. They only lock when there is a sudden change in the vehicles forward momentum.

    I confirmed what I know to be true with my own Dodge truck by speaking with a Dodge dealer. The seatbelts are designed to retract fully once they are fastened. This is a safety feature designed to prevent passengers from locking the seatbelt too far away from their body. I do not wish to mislead you, but you can check with the Chrysler Dodge experts by posting your question to the 'contact us' tab on their website.

I have a 1998 Nissan Terrano R50 with a seatbelt light flashing .


If you have a heavy enough object sitting in the passenger seat, the sensor may think a person is sitting there without a seatbelt on....or in a case that I ran into a few years back, a small coin had lodged inside my locking side seat belt. The side with the release button. Or lastly, have you vacuumed your car recently? You may have unplugged your seatbelt sensor wires while vacuuming.
Your car is getting up in age too, so check to see if the retracting spring is still pulling the seatbelt back into its holster, check the general condition of your locks on the belts....not sure if there is a fuse link for a seatbelt system in your car...but you could check your owners manual to see if there is, and while in the manual...check for reasons the seatbelt light comes on too. You can get a copy of your owners manual on line from Nissan or a aftermarket source. Good luck and sorry I couldn't be more specific. Your owners manual or an on line search of the trouble code and the specific working generated by the readout will give some information I'm sure....Work safely please. and beware of air bags when messing with seat safety issues. If you deploy an air bag on yourself while messing with the safety controls.....you could be killed or injured....so be careful.

Rear seat down and wont go back up; locked middle belt


middle seat belt shouldn't have anything to do with it. The seat locks down for stowage in the rear cargo area. you can pull the release handle on the back of the seat to release it back into the up position.

Saturn vue 2007, rear folding seat will not return to proper position due to seat belt being locked up.


They have a problem with the seatbelt retractor getting jammed up causing the belt to jam & not let the rear seat fold back up.The easiest way to get the seat back up is to cut the seatbelt & fold up the seat.Then the rear seat needs to be disassembled to gain access to the seatbelt retractor assy which has the seat belt made on.Hopefully it's still under warranty or Ext. warranty.hope this helps

Seatbelt lock reset on f-150 pick up


rear seat belts lock if you pull them out all the way and put them ALR mode. Automatic Locking Restraint. It will ratchet as the belt is rewound. This is for holding a child seat in place.

Is this your issue?

Passenger side seat belt won't pull out


It could have twisted on recoil and is now stuck. You'd have to remove the interior panel to view that.

On the really bad side, the seat belt pretensioner could have failed or fired and locked the belt in place. If that's the case, I'd have a mechanic replace it since you can trigger an air bag deployment replacing it yourself.

The seat belt on my 1987 Chevrolet S10 locks before its fully out


there are two knobs on the bottom of the seatbelt base. they are on either side of the plastic base. If you jam something in the middle of those two stops between your floorboard and base of seatbelt holder it will work perfectly!!
