Seat Belt Pretensioner Types
A pretensioner is a device connected to the safety belt buckle, safety belt retractor and/or outboard lower safety belt anchor assembly. Another key point is that a properly working pretensioner is a combination of the following:
- An accident occurs that triggers the airbag module's electronic activation process
- The triggered pyrotechnic gas generator activates the pretensioner
- This pretensioner activation tightens the seat belt
- Note: The Airbag Module does NOT always deploy the airbag
Furthermore, pretensioners activate as a result of certain accidents or crashes, such as:
- frontal accidents or crashes
- side accidents or crashes
- rear accidents or crashes
- rollover accidents or crashes
Surprisingly, pretensioner activation can also depend upon the type of vehicle involved in the crash. Oddly enough, some vehicle pretensioners deploy even if the safety belt is buckled. All pretensions types have the following three pieces:
- pyrotechnic gas generator
- retractor spool
The buckle pretensioner uses a pyrotechnic gas generator that propels the piston. After it activates, the safety belt buckle has a cable that pulls the buckle down toward the seat, thereby tightening and locking the belt. The anchor pretensioner uses a pyrotechnic gas generator that propels the piston. After it activates, the outboard lower safety belt anchor assembly's cable pulls the buckle down toward the floor, thereby tightening and locking the belt. The retractor pretensioner uses a pyrotechnic gas generator device. This pyrotechnic gas generator "backwinds" the retractor spool thereby tightening and locking the belt. Use the same precautions used for any other SRS Inflatable Restraint Components. Like other SRS Inflatable Restraint Components, Pretensioners can contain an electronic charge for a short time. Even after the battery is disconnected or the ignition is turned off, the Pretensioner has the risk of causing an electric shock.
Driver belt and passenger belt are stuck and locked after accident and SRS airbag light is on, how does this work?
Seat belt pretensioners are designed to lock up during an accident and there is in an internal pyro device that goes bad and causes the airbag light to continue to stay on. We rebuild seat belt pretensioners using all original manufacturer OEM parts. Your part will be rebuilt meeting or exceeding the manufacturer specifications and meets Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS).

One electrical plug means that you have a single stage belt; two plugs are a dual stage, three plugs are triple stage.

Do you replace original color webbing if it has been cut?
Yes, we replace the cut webbing after vehicle was in an accident wh ere belts locked and webbing was cut. Also, if the webbing is crusty we will complimentary wash it, so it will operate correctly.
How do I know if my seat belt pretensioner is good or bad?
First you can try to buckle up and see if it allows you to buckle up and the seat belt light turns off on the dashboard. Next step is to pull on the seat belt with a quick jerk and see if the seat belt locks. That is the basic pull test. After the vehicle is in accident there is a pyro sensor that is in the seat belt that is initiated to lock the belt. This will store a code and keep your airbag light on. You can also use a diagnostic scan tool to see if there are any seat belt codes stored in the system. To test the pyro sensor that is in the seat belt you can use a diagnostic scan tool to see if it has any seat belt codes or use a multimeter to measure OHMs of the seat belt. The OHM reading Good seat belt pretensioner will give you a reading of 2 - 3 OHMs.
