Check the plug underneath the seat. If it's unplugged the seat belt will be stuck.

New Answer: I have to assume that you are talking about a convertible and that the seat belts are locked. You are able to retract them back into the seat, but not pull them out. Is that correct?

Sebring convertibles have a device called a seat belt timer control module that is located under the center console and to the rear of the parking brake handle. This device acts as a timer, allowing electricity to flow to the seat belt locking solenoids for 30 minutes after the car is shut off or the door is opened. The reason these cars have locking solenoids is because the entire seat belt mechanism moves with the seat and must be able to work in any position. A standard swinging anchor type of reel lock would not work with this seat because of the ability to recline.

The timing control module also senses changes in pitch and rapid acceleration/deceleration of the car, locking the seat belt mechanisms. These modules do go bad from time to time and must be replaced. It is highly unlikely that the plugs under both seats came unplugged at the same time, though it is certainly the first and cheapest thing to check.

If you must buy a new unit from Chrysler, be prepared to spend about $150 for the part. I have no idea what the labor charge would be since I do my own work, but anyone who is handy with basic hand tools can do this job in less than an hour. You might also consider picking the part up from a U-pull-it type of auto recycler, where the part will surely cost you less than $20.

In a 1999 Chrysler Sebring Convertible the seat belts are stuck and will not pull out how can this be fixed?

I have the same problem in a 2000 Sebring. You can't pull the seat belts out of the seat's retractor. According to the owner's manual the seat belt mechanism needs power on to allow the seat belts to extend. When you open the door or put the key to accessory position power is allowed. The fuse for the seat belts is listed with the flashers and the flashers work ok. I will post more after I fix it. There is a wire connector under the seat that controls the seat belt mechanism. You have to make sure it is connected otherwise the seat belt will remain in the stuck position. I had the same problem, seat belt was stuck and I couldn't use it. I discovered the wire wasn't connected under the seat. Once I reconnected it and turned on the car I was able to pull the seat belt out.

Coins stuck in the seat belt clip will cause the seat belt to get stuck, I use a very sturdy piece of metal to place behind the seat belt buckle, a socket a little smaller than the push button and a hammer to get it unstuck "you get the picture" and it works every time for me. Pull out the coins " most likely" and you got working seat belts again. I hope this can help out a few fellows out there.
