You can not release the seat belts. They are a one time use, kind of like the air bags. the seat belt fire off and they can only be replaced, but insurance should cover that expense.
if this answered your question please give a thumbs up to help others.

Repair deployed airbags on chevy malibu 2005


You will not be able to perform this repair without a scan-tool that can communicate with the Air-Bag system. This tool allows the mechanic to look and test affected components. It also allows the system to be reset, after the necessary repairs are completed. The Air-Bag deployed because the Air-Bag Control Module detected an impact. If you replace the air-bag before any necessary repairs are completed and before the system is reset, the new air-bag will deploy as soon as it receives power.

Did the air bags deploy?
If not then your frame should be ok. The impact wasn't enough to bend the frame.
If your air bags did deploy. Then your frame could have damage. I recommend taking it to a collision center near you to have it checked.

Seatbelts locked after minor collision


Your seat belts are tied in to your air bag system. Even though your air bags may not have deployed, your seat belt(s) have deployed a one-time use trigger designed to cinch you tightly into your seat in the collision you were in. There is no way to reset them, they will need to be replaced. A used, functioning seatbelt will work, but usually must be of the same year as your car, even if other years appear identical. The wrong year will appear to the on board computer as an error, and will not allow the system to be restored to functional (air bag light will not go off), even though now your seat belt will appear to function. If your air bag light stays on after the bulb-check sequence at startup, it means the system is disabled...the air bag will not function in a crash.

Air bag code 33 for a 2005 lincoln town car


2005 Towncar SRS Code 33 (3 flash + 3 flash, repeat this set for twice. then Beep 5 times pause x 5 = 25 beeps every 30min).

This means you have problem with left (Driver) side pretentioner (Seat belt retract system).
It doesn't mean physical belt or retract mechanism.It is just bomb wiring which is part of airbag system.
When airbag deploy, passenger must stay tight in seat otherwise body lean to front then slam back to seat by airbag.
if belt is loose or delay to lock, passenger's body rocks back and forth.So, system use small bomb (Fire power) to lock and retract seat belt when airbag deploy.There is small bomb and igniter in part of Seat belt retractor.
Code 33 is warning for this part on 2005 Towncar.(older model is different meaning in Ford/Lincoln, it's possibly passenger side airbag system for earlier model)
Before you work for any part of Airbag system and touch any "Yellow connector", * *Disconnect battery (negative side is good enough) and wait at least 5 min to clear all power in system**.(Airbag store back up power for few minutes to be able to deploy even in case if power disconnected)
by the way, you should move your driver seat most forwarded position before you disconnect battery to make it easy to work with seat belt.
locate driver side seat belt retractor (in center pillar between front and rear door, you may have to fight with weather strip)

Locate Yellow connector on bottom of Seat belt retractor (it's called "Pretensioner")it is located on very bottom of rear side of retractor.
only one yellow connector. (make sure your battery is disconnected)
Check its physical connection or looseness.if connection looks fine, you may have to replace whole seat belt ($180-$200 in Lincoln dealer)
You can check if pretensionor is good or bad by regular tester, but unless you know how, I won't tell (because I don't wan't you to blow out pretentionor).

2005 BEEN IN ACCIDENT AND NOW THE SEAT BELTS WILL NOT RELEASE


the seat belts will not release, and the air bag light is on
You will need to replace the seat belts that have the air bag wiring hooked up to them, they are supposed to lock in place during a collision.
there is no way around it.
