most likely your airbags deployed,yes? when ever your air bags deploys the seat belts automaticly retract to make them tighter on impact. they must be replaced along with the airbags & crash sensors located in the front of the vehicle,usually behind the bumper cover & the sensors under the seats or inside the console.then they must be reprogrammed by computer.
