My '93 Legacy has some problems with it's auto seatbelts, you get in and turn the key and they don't always close, they might sit there for a few minutes before moving. Is there a switch or something I can rebuild or adjust to fix this? Thanks. (Hope I'm not wearing you guys out with all these questions!!)

If you bought your car new, you probably paid a couple of hundred dollars above what a simple, manual 3 point seatbelt system would have cost because someone mandated an automatic system to keep us safe.

I had the same type of problem and fiddled with the switches until it worked. It was just an adjustment but I can't remember which switch was the culprit.

Here are the components that replaced the manual system:

ignition switch
door lock switch
front limit switch
rear limit switch
2 relays
CEL trouble code indicator
(that right, it's so simple you need help from the computer to fix it)

Start with a diagnostic. I've tried to attach the codes.
Good Luck

Now I remember why I was so pissed when I had to fix mine. My FSM has some duplicate pages and is missing some that are needed.
Here's a little more info. Maybe someone else can help too.

the 90 & 91 MY's the auto belts came standard.....I don't even know if you could get them in the states without the mad mice.

I think the 92-94's it might have been an option....
