1994 SC1
Question Seat Belt Motor Repair

My 94 SC-1 coupe has an electric motor that is supposed to slide forward every time you open and shut the door. but lately it only hums(very annoyingly) as it is stuck in place. Any tips on how to fix it so it works? Or at least shut it off so it stops that eternal racket in my ear every single day!!

by the way it is stuck in the right position so at least it works to have my seat belt on. Would love to have it fixed though.

There are one of two solutions:

1. Find a replacement Seatbelt Motor, which is in the center console.

2. In your Instrument Panel Junction Block (On the Passenger Side of your car...Fuse Panel Access: Do the following:

A. Put your key in the ignition to get accessories running but not the car. (You will have the warning lamps on the dash lit up.)
B. Pull the Driver side Passive Restraint seatbelt connector toward you and to the back of the B Pillar.
C. Go to the Passenger side of the car and open up the Fuse Panel Access.
D. Pull the Fuse that is number 16 (P Rest). It is a Natural Colored 25 Amp Fuse. Once you pull this fuse, your Passive Restraints (Seatbelts) will remain in the same position regardless if the car is on or off.

If you do this, use common sense and still pull the belt across you when you drive, otherwise you may run the risk of getting ticketed for not wearing your seatbelt.

Actually the seatbelt motors are in the lower "B" pillar on the driver and passenger side. The control module is under the center console.

Sorry, got those confused....usually it is the Control Module that needs to be replaced and not the motors, at least that is how I have understood it, but correct me if I am wrong...

Could be one of em ,or both ,I have a good working driver side ,pas. side is D O A ,and unplugged at the motor itself .
I suppose if one works (like mine ) the module is still good !
if both are non functional ,you'd need to troubleshoot system .

...
Have A Great Day , it is YOUR choice !
