Hi you all!
Two day ago the SRS light went on shortly after taking a curve , and yesterday did same thing. Today my driver seat belt is stuck and can not release it. Does anybody experienced similar trouble?
How can i solve it?

Thank you for your help.

remove the plastic panel from the side of the car and check that the seatbelt tensioners haven't fired if they have you will need new ones if it's not those it might be a coin thats dropped into the mechanism but chances are the seatbelt tensioners have fired

agreed if your srs light went off it is part of the restraint system which tensions the seat belt when you are in a collision usually!
