If the automatic seatbelt on a 91 Mazda MX6 is stuck in its forward position is the motor dead or is there an electrical problem?
BEFORE you try to fix it, look for a RECALL on the part. Most MAZDA automatic belts from 90-94 have a 25-year recall open on the automatic seatbelt rails. If your dealer can find the part, they will change it for free
Hey Zack==It has to be checked out to see what went wrong. GoodluckJoe
You have to investigate, it could be a few different things. I would try shaking where the seatbelt goes on the track to see if it starts moving. Or press the red button to disengage the seatbelt to see if that triggers it.
The seat belt motor sits right behind the door. If you want to get to the motor, you have to take off the side panel in the backseat. You can try moving those wires to see if there is a short.
There is also a black box that sits under the passenger seat and is bolted to the floor. Not the box that is bolted to the bottom of the passenger seat, that is the amp. Check the connections to that.
You can also mess with the door latch and see if it triggers the seat belt to move forward.
What I did is I just went to a junk yard and bought the motor, the track that goes over the door that the seat belt travels along and the little black box under the passenger seat all at once. All this cost $45. It was easier to do this than to find the short.
Check in your owners manual under the seatbelt section. I have a few years older escape and the process was relatively straight forward. Apply parking brake, turn on battery of car (not engine), wait for the seatbelt light to turn off. Buckle and unbuckle seatbelt 9 times finishing on the umbuckle position. Wait for seatbelt light to flash and stop, and buckle and unbuckle one more time. The seatbelt light will flash rapidly for a…
Anti-submarining ramps don't have anything to do with submarines, I'm afraid. During a car crash, when a person slides underneath the seatbelt, that is called submarining. The seatbelt slides up onto the stomach, and can cause injury. An anti-submarining ramp is a ramp built into the seat cushion, underneath the foam padding, that helps to prevent the person from sliding forward on the seat underneath the seatbelt. This keeps the seatbelt in the proper position…
To fix it I would recommed taking it to your nearest Ford/Lincold/Mercury dealership. If it is stuck forward however..... Where the belt should be in the driving position there is a screw, take it out. There is a manual override in there, turn it clockwise until you can move the belt to the proper position. Spyder
I have encountered this problem in a standard 2.0 Mondeo. Basically, I have found that when the seat back is folded forward, with the mechanism in a horizontal plane (as opposed to a vertical plane), the release mechanism will not operate. This is extremely annoying as you you cannot then lift the seat back into the upright position as the jammed mechanism won't allow it. The answer is to pull the seat squab forward to…
Lamar Odom is officially listed at power forward. He will often play the small forward position, as well. He is one of the most versatile players in the league, and thus, he has no defined position. He will generally only play power and small forward, but on special occasions, the shooting guard position or the center position.
Usually it is a short in the electrical system. You may want to check all your fuses too. But most likely it is because the motor for the seat belt went out. Automatic seat belts won't go into position unless they think the door is closed. Plus the door chime won't stop unless the car thinks the doors are closed. Try spraying WD-40 in all door latches. It worked for us!
Remove the bench by prying up the bottom front edge on the outboard ends. Two vlips hold it in place. Then pull forward. Remove the back by first removing the two inboard seatbelt bolts. Pry the seatbelt holder away from the bolts. Pull forward on the bottom of the seatback and then lift up. There are three brackets holding the back to the interior chassis.
