Your problem could be caused by a stuck or defective ignition relay, a stuck fuel shut-off solenoid relay, or another part near both relays is broken.
In order to appeal more to pickup buyers, the early 2500 models featured large grilles and looked more like big rig trucks. There wasn't any event that led to the failure, they both just quit working. I'd probably just bite the bullet and take it into a dealer you hear good things about. The contact stated that the front passenger and driver seat belts would not release out of the buckles and the seat belt warning indicator illuminated. I researched the issue on the internet and apparently it is something that happens quite often leaving both the driver and occupant without safety restraints. There are several blogs with owners stating same issues with their trucks and Dodge has not recalled this safety item or accommodated anyone with these problems as of date.
I have not safety tested this nor am I an engineer or auto safety expert. Upon getting in vehicle, I found both the driver's side and passenger side seat belts locked in the retracted position. But it's all contained it the cylinder. The contact stated that the seat belts would not extend or retract. Heated leather seats were added in 2000 to increase passenger comfort during cold weather. This is a huge safety issue if you cannot use your seat belts anymore. Then again Sharpshootermb's comment about a timer may be something? Hopefully something simple, like the glove box light from it not fully closing the switch anymore, same with under-hood light, etc.
Practical Machinist is the easiest way to learn new techniques, get answers quickly and discuss common challenges with your peers. My 99 dually will do that sometimes if you let the seat back tilt forward too fast. What seems to be the problem and how can I fix it? Does any one here have any experience with this that you may be able to shed some light on this? In 1999, the Dodge Ram 2500 Sport models were given restyled bumpers, body-color grilles, and quad-beam headlamps with clear lenses. Parts salesman wasn't confident that it would be available for purchase as some seat belts are discontinued. Have a few beers and call me in the a-a-a when the snow melts off. She contacted Chrysler, and they told her that the truck was a 1998 model and had a lot of mileage on it. These seat belts go into the seat at the upper corner so that they are not accessible at least not easily accessible.
If the seat belt tensioner is deployed it's a simple fix to install a 29 cent resistor in the circuit. The approximate failure mileage was 35,000. To avoid this, you must try to go on a long drive—at least one hour or so—every two weeks to cook all the water out of the oil. Requires replacement of seat belt control module and it is no longer available at dealers or anywhere else. The vehicle was not repaired. Chrysler should be required to issue a recall on all Dodge trucks with the seat belts mounted in the seat backs that use this module for proper operation.
I will not likely buy another Dodge ever again. So I started pulling fuses one at a time. The rear window was leaking so badly at one point the entire ceiling inside was soaded.

These are part of some of the new vehicles restraint systems. So start pulling modules next? It is normal to have the solenoid energize and de-energize under moderate to heavy acceleration or braking. Dave With more than 10. Without a factory scanner or knockoff you're kind of stuck with a best guess beyond this. Got to take a win anywhere I can as this is frustrating. Remember: this is temporary, as you still need to find what's causing your truck to keep running, and you can't diagnose it while the engine is still on.
It looks and drives fine. I stopped at a local dealership for part P56043003ad and was informed this part on national back order. There are a ton of people posting on the internet having this same seat belt lock up problem. Parts salesman wasn't confident that it would be available for purchase as some seat belts are discontinued. They ain't Red, gas cans, and they ain't Blue, Kero cans.
