Owner's manual say that 'if the seat belt motor" does not come on after changing the fuses...then move the seat belt mechanism manually to the back and 'usefull' position. My owners manual says there is a 'plastic plug' on the 'b' pillar at the bottom. You have to pry that 'plug' off and insert a tool, that came in my 'flat tire' tool box to manually pull the sealt belt mechanism to the back position. The tool look like a "torx' head screw driver with a 'push' on 'wheel' so you can wheel back the mechanism. I have seen both of these items in my 'flat tire' tool bag that came with the car. I hope I still have them. I will now go out and try it.

AnswerMake sure you check the fuses under your hood, I had the same problem on my '90 Accord and it turns out it was some bad fuses. Also check your relays while under the hood.The reason for relays is to provide 12 volt power to anything mechanical or motorized, which is what your seatbelts are. check back and let me know if it worked for you. Good Luck! Answeri also have a Honda accord, 1991.and drivers side only works in the forward position and all fuses look good to me and looked at all connection, all look good ......any help wold be helpful. thanks rig Answerwell..i checked all wires, contacts, plugs, switches with a meterand wire diagram,all in working order. from door latch to the module under passenger side seat.unpluged module and jumped wires and made the seat belt move manually...replaced mudule..........and still didnt work...are there any other switches someplace else?hmmmmm maybe replace with manaul belts?ant guesses will help.....thanks AnswerThere are switches at both ends of the seat belt "runway", try turning off the vehicle, press down on the reset switch, turn car on, hopefully the set belt works now.

Also, I have manually moved the seat belt to the locked position, as long as no-one uses that door, the warning "beep" at least goes away.

Does a 1992 Honda Accord come with the automatic seat belts or did it change to a manual belt from the 1991 model?

Some of the 1991 models have automatic seat belts, in fact, I think all of them do. So, I think it is safe to assume your 92 model came with the automatic belts. I have a 1992 Honda Accord EX and I have manual seatbelts, so maybe it was an option... but not standard....
