It sounds like you have the misfortune of having an "automatic" seatbelt. You could have a bad sensor, you could have a bad motor, you could have a jammed track, you could simpy have a burned out fuse (if you're lucky). If you hear a grinding noise or the carrier jerks but won't move when the seatbelt is supposed to be going from closed to open or open to closed positions, you're sunk. That means that the seatbelt is jammed or has jumped the track....replacements for this kind of thing out of warranty are extremely expensive....lift up your hood ornament, slide another car under it, discard your previous car. If you don't hear any noise or the seatbelt carrier doesn't even try to move, you may simply have a burnt out fuse...go through your fuse box and do a bit of trial and error. If you're lucky, it'll start working again. If not, it could be a sensor (thoughtfully built into the track on Fords...see grinding above for a solution), it could be a burned out motor (same repair indicated), or it could be an electrical problem/broken wire....I don't have that kind of patience, maybe you do.

2004 cavalier can you make the driver side seat belt longer you can barely lock it?

If your seat belt doesn't fit, the only available option, (other than not buckling up) is to use a seat belt extender. A seat belt extender is typically about 8" in length and snaps into the existing seat belt, providing a longer belt and a better fit. Seat belt extenders are not universal in fit and you must get the extender for your particular vehicle. You can do so by calling the service department of your local dealership. Some dealers may charge for the extender, while others provide them free of charge.


How do you turn off the seat belt lamp on 2006 Toyota Camry?

Not sure what you are asking here. The driver side seatbelt light should turn off when you buckle it. You are buckling it? The passenger side seat belt light can be turned off also by buckling it. There may be a way to disable the passenger side seat belt light,but why would you want to do that? Seat belts are one of the best safety devices ever mandated. Ford offered them I believe on the 57 model and found that no one wanted to think about safety and driving.


How do you remove the seatbeltS on a aztek?

Front seats: Driver side belt is bolted to the floor under the the drivers seat. Rear left bolt or rear bolt closest to door. Pass side is bolt same way, but the bot is on right, closest to door. Both drive and pass side have plastic pillars that pop-off, which hold the bolt that secures the other side of the belt. Rear seats: Pull the handle next to the seat, between seat and door. This will allow you to drop the seat forward, the other lever on the same side will allow you to lift the back of the seat up. Remove the seat by pulling the bar under the seats. Belt is secured to the seat itself.

How do you replace your seat belt on a 99 Ford Explorer?

'96 Explorer Seat Belt Replacementhttp://www.seatcoverset.com/seatcovers-car_seat_cover.htmIn order to replace the driver side seat belt on a '96 Explorer, you must completely remove the drivers seat. Removing driver side seat belt: Use a 10mm socket/wrench to remove the two bolts securing the front of the seat to the floor. Move the seat as close to the steering wheel as possible to expose the rear of the sliding seat rails. Pop off the two covers at the end of each rail to expose two more 10mm bolts securing the seat to the floor. Next, remove the plastic cover with a Torx symbol on it at the rear of the seat belt guide rail. Removing the aforementioned cover will allow access to a large Torx bolt just below the rear of the center console. Remove this large Torx bolt, unplug any electrical wires below the seat, and remove the entire seat from the Explorer. With the seat out, you can use the same Torx wrench to unscrew the seat belt itself from the seat. Reassembly is the opposite of disassembly.
