1990 Honda Accord Power Seat Belt
Electrical problem 1990 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 169633 miles Ok first I am 16 years old and own a very old car(by my standards) and have to repair it myself. The power seat belt on the passenger side works but the driver side does not... It has continuity and is getting power so I replaced it and it worked for a while but nw it is stuck in the forward position again. Any help please?
