Good day to all:

Well while i am trying to solve one problem with my 1991 Corrado, I noticed that both of my front automatic seat belts are all the way on the B pillar which is the post aft of the door. both are engaged and when i open or close the door noting happens and i dont even hear nothing runing or see anything move. The belts are engaged and wont do anything else.

I have been digging and i notice that my relay and fuse box is not as identical to the ones in my manual. I know i am missing the horn relay but when i look at the top it does not look like the one in the manual. It makes it harder to figure what are those segments for as well as some of the fuses on the top side.

I will appreciate all the help i can get on this.

Hi Wilfredo, to find seat belt stuff remove bottom of both back seats check for grounding issues to check your fuses in that car you can use a test light, and for any thing your not sure of, like previous owner tampering or mechanic miss handeling use color codes of wires to identify fuses etc...

I just finished fixing my head lights and fog lights, I will be moving to the seatbelts this weekend and this tip will help me greatly instead of taking half the interior apart.

Thanks

Wilfredo,

There's one more thing, monstrous lookin' relays under back seats are the controllers for the seat belts and each also has a fuse back there, do you have a service manual for your car? there is a trouble shooting guide in there just for the belts.

Hello Randy:

I have the actual shop manual I will look into it, I thought I was done with the engine but now it has been shutting off and not starting so I am back to focusing on the engine. I will check the manual for the troubleshooting information on the seatbelts.

Thanks

How are you guys doing? I'm having a situation with my seat belt relays. I completely charged my New (6 months) battery, the battery was dead the next day. I went to recharge the batter. Got a buzzing noise from the rear where the relays are. It wouldn't allow the car to take a charge while the cables were hooked up. So I disconnected the cables, pulled these long or double relays out. Part # 357 959 663 ( SHO 89 85 51 ). I then allowed the battery to charge for about 30%, she turned over and started. Its been 2 day now without have the relays in place. Question - Would that be 2 bad relays or bad ground for the relays. I'm also having problem with my ele. window regulators. Lt drive side was working fine, I had to replace the RT passager side. Now neither are working I can hear the module making noise. I just replaced that used, but its making noises like the original. Could this be the same problem as the seat belt relays. A Ground??????
