That happened on my car too. It happens when you hit the brakes and open the door while the car is still in gear. The motor whats to move but the seatbelt wont give any slack becasue you are hitting the brakes. What worked for me is to hit the emergency release on the sliding mechanism and then open and shut the door while the car is on then reconect the seatbelt.

Hi, This happens when the cable that runs the belt goes bad ,needs to be replaced ,check your local junk yard,or call a dealer junk yard is a LOT cheaper, not a hard job to change. Good luck Slim
