Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemThe front seat belts lock up and cannot be used or tighten up to where you have to unlatch them due to the seat belt motor sensor in my 98 dodge 3500. They are unpredictable and make it unsafe to use them when you do and it is unsafe not to use them. Dodge is very aware of the problem since the have since returned to using manual seat belts but don't want to fix the problem in these vehicles, and charge the vehicle owners to repair the seat belts since the laws require them. *nm
