MY AUTOMATIC SEAT BELTS ARE STUCK HALFWAY!

1991 Saturn SL2

Electrical problem
1991 Saturn SL2 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 150000 miles

I went to start up my car this morning and the seatbelts wouldn't retract in either way. Is the anyway for me to at least lock them back into the driving position and treat them like normal seat belts?

What postion are they stuck in?U could check ur fuse in the inside fuse box behind the passenger foward kick panel I belive the fuse is labeled prest something that its a 25 amp. From what u describe with both inop would usually be a blown fuse or a bad prcm which controls the seat bealts thats under ur center console sometimes they crack and get liquids or moisture in them. Under ur ebrake theres a little panel u can carefully pull that up they get brittle and see if ur prcm is spilt or cracked. To answer ur other question yes there is a way to use the belt like a normal seat belt but u wont be able to bring the seat belts back in rear postion with out fixing them there motor and cable driven. Ok heres what u can do look in ur glove box theres a good chance u dont have this but u might it will ethier be in a little hole off to the side or just laying in there its silver and looks like what u hook the seat belt on that locks in place of ur seat belt when ur seat belt is inop if u wanted to find one or an extra one for the other side u would have to try pick apart I doubt the dealer can get them any more u can try but I doubt it. Another thing to remember if u have state inspections where ur at u probably wont pass with the seat belt not moving atleast when I worked in upstate ny they wouldnt pass. Let me know what u find.
