My daughter has a 2004 Focus. She was in a minor accident and rear
ended a pickup truck at a very low speed. The only damage to her car
was a slightly dented hood, which is not visible unless you are less
than 6 inches away. The problem is that the air bag light is on and
she cannot retract her seat belt. Is there a way to release the locking
mechanism or is it part of the air bag system?
Whether or not there was an airbag deployment, there is more going on than
just releasing the seat belt; you need to have the airbag system diagnosed
to see what needs repaired. I would recommend a Ford dealership for this;
it is either going to fall under a warranty repair or an insurance claim.
