Okay, I looked in the owners manual and there is no mention of a fuse for to Auto Seat Belts. Neither side is working (they did up until today) so I figured it must be a fuse. It's a 1992 Loyale Wagon. Any help would be appreciated. I know, I hate 'em too, but with the seat belt law here in Wisconsin they've save my butt a few times. Not to mention in a crash situatuation. Thanks guys!!

The clock/radio/hazard fuse was the culprit on MY Loyale. Popped a new fuse in, and they worked again!

However, the Control box that works the auto-seatbelts is located behind the drivers rear wheel well. Enough rust-out in that wheel well, and the next thing you know, the mini-ecu is getting sprayed with water and salt :eek: That tends to lead to troubles :rolleyes:

Hope this helps.

There is a fuse, I don't recall which one. When I purchased my Loyale, same thing, the belts didn't work. Turned out to be a blown fuse. Just pull each fuse out, one by one until you see one blown.

Another good indicator of a blown fuse, you won't get the ding ding ding or the little seat belt wearing guy on the dash.

Thanks for your help guys!! I will look at the fuses this weekend. It's a "tropical" 3 degrees here in Wisconsin today. Supposed to warm up this weekend. I also am concerned about the "relay box". If its in the wheel well as mentioned in an earlier post, that could be my problem. I noticed after I bought the car that there is a leak (water) somewhere in the rear of the car that causes the passenger side rear footwell to "puddle-up" a bit. How hard is it to pull the rear interior trim pieces off to take a look?? Do I have to pull the back seat out?? I'm thinking of it's not a fuse it's gotta be a salt water gunked-up realy box. Again, I'm working around the no autobelts for now but would like to fix it (and the leak) when we get some warmer weather.
Thanks again!!

agreed. happened on my car, I got a short in one of my turn signals, and next thing I know, my seatbelts don't work.
