Problem Description and Possible Solution
The front automatic seat belt commonly sticks in its track and fails to properly operate, causing a safety issue. This also causes an electrical draw that will drain the battery and may cause the car not to start. The dealer may cover (or partially cover) the repair costs.

Same problem--front seat belt restraint (intermetiantly) sticks in the track. I had a pretty good drain on the battery and couldn't figure out why, until I saw this problem online. I pulled the fuse (A-4) for that side, and the drain to the battery stopped.
