Mine does the same thing, kinda annoying. My luck it won't catch when I need it too.

I think there was a recall on some of these seatbelts...i could be mistaken but seems like i remember something like that. Might call the dealer and ask.

You're not alone! Mine is super sensitive also. If I take a brick road, I am assured of two things. First one is that my seatbelt locks up and the second is that the truck will rattle so much I can't even hear myself think.

its not something ford can fix. its just a very sensetive interia switch in the seat belt mechanism

Same here and Ford told me it is what it is..... :dunno:.

Not to worry, I found a cheap a fix for it..... A $.10 binder clip at the top of the belt near the shoulder loop. It gives me enough room to move around and do what I want but still keep my butt in place if needed.
