Most stuck seat belts are that way because of the inertial lock that is built in. On most models, there is a pin that is trippable on the side of the buckle. It should release the latch.
One reason the seat belt on your PT Cruiser is stuck is that there is a twist in the belt. The mechanism that retracts the seat belt may be jammed or broken.

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.
Seat belts are unsafe because they can get stuck in a fire. Throw back someone inside the seat belt. Seat belts can choke people.
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.
There is a recall on this problem take it to the dealer

You might try accessing the seat belt from the trunk. Pull aside the interior lining in the trunk ( which ever side the belt is on) and find the seat belt, give a gentle tug and see if that will release the belt. Mine does the same thing when the kids pull too far on the belt. If I took the time to investigate I'd probably find that the belt has been twisted and that's why it keeps getting stuck.
Trace the seat belt back to the point that it is anchored in with a bolt and undo the bolt (using a ratchet is the easiest way due to not having much space) then raise the seat back to the uprght locked position and the seat belt should free itself.
A seat belt in a Saturn might be stuck because there is also something else stuck in the latch. Use a small pin or crochet hook to probe around the outside part of the latch. Once the seat belt is unlatched, clean it out with tweezers and spray both ends with WD-40.

Here is a free tip from a senior cabbie to release a stuck middle seat belt on a rear seat of any car. I had a Ford mondeo 03 reg which encountered a middle seat belt problem on the rear seat. The belt pulled to expanded position wouldn't wind back to its closing position. I took it to a clever mechanic and all he did was nothing less than a magic; 1. He folded the back of the seat down, which the belt was attached to. 2. He Threw the seat's back, back to its vertical position with a shear force. That was it..problem solved and the stuck spring started to function properly again. I tried the same trick once again in a citroen xsara and it worked. I hope it works for every one out there. there is no cost trying it. Good luck!
it may just be stuck, or it burned out and needs to be taken apart. A dealer will charge you for electrical work use the emergency seat belt crank in the back seat near the door pillers should be an access pannel about the size of a silver dollar believe can be turned with an Allen wrench get it all the way back and call it good the motor for the seat belt is not a cheap fix
I bought this car two weeks ago, now the seat belt is stuck in the full retracted position. Can this be released without damage?
You really shouldn't try to fix anything that could be wrong with a seat belt. It even says that in your owners manual. It's a seat belt, it is designed to protect you. If there is ever anything wrong with it, you should take it to a certified repair man.
