First...if this was already posted, then I apologize. I searched a few times the other night and found nothing.

The problem: driver's sidebelt doesn't always work. After starting the car, the passenger always goes back, but the driver's side one only does sometimes. Other times, the seatbelt goes after driving around for a few minutes. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance...

Well, as far as I know, they aren't automated. But I'm not sure on that. I have a 92 XLE. I have the same problem with my passanger side. Accept it won't ever pull it up all the way. It' will still be free to move.

I assume it is just the belt coil getting worn. After so much use, they give out. Much like my passanger window:(

^ Gen 2's have automatic seatbelts.

It has 2 seperate belts. Shoulder (automatic) and lap (manual). Only applies to the front seats though.

Anyways i'm not sure whats going on with your seatbelts, but I have a electrical manual for a gen 2 if you need the wiring diagrams.

88 LE: Thanks, I just may need that actually. I'm not sure how the entire system is laid out just yet, but I imagine it combines the door sensor, key in on position, and a relay tied to constant power. If you see the diagram in the manual, feel free to let me know what it says. Thanks, it's greatly appreciated.

Correct.

Entire system is tied to a 30A circuit breaker (located in drivers side kick panel).

Theres a bunch of switches and a seperate computer (automatic shoulder belt computer).

If you see the diagram in the manual, feel free to let me know what it says. Thanks, it's greatly appreciated.
Theres a section (4 pages) in the manual just on the automatic shoulder belts.

I'll scan the diagrams and post a link to them.

Link to the diagrams:

http://www.pierreluxury.com/pics/toyota/seatbelt

1 & 2 is the schematic. 3 & 4 are the plugs associated with the automatic shoulder belts.

Automatic shoulder belt computer is located underneath the center console where the shifter and e-brake lever is.

Belt limit switch and belt motor is located at the bottom of the B-pillar. Limit switch and motor on each side (RH & LH).

Belt spool release switch is underneath the center console.

Belt switch is at the bottom of the B-pillar. One on each side (RH & LH).

The rest of the plugs are behind the driver or passenger side kickpanel.

Hi - I am having a similar issue on my 88 Camry. My driver side belt does not move at all, but the passenger side works fine. Any ideas? Any chance of getting those diagrams hosted again? Thanks!

Wow, my thread is back from the dead.

As far as my situation, it eventually remedied itself the more I drove it...then I didn't drive the car at all bwt. July and Dec. (overheating issues). I fixed the car last week, am putting the GSR in storage, (good timing due to winter's arrival), and the seatbelt won't go back on the Camry still. I'm calling Toyota tomorrow to see if it's a lifetime warranty (it should be).

If not, then I'll tackle the wiring...but if it's a free fix from the dealer, then I'll do that. It's too cold to tinker w/stuff, haha.

If you look on the bottom of your B-pillar there should be a little flap door you can open. Behind this door is a little device you can turn with a screwdriver to manually adjust the belts, not the best fix but that'll git 'r done til it's warmer out...
