My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am a professional here at Just Answer/Pearl. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

Your seat belt retractors should be equipped with the ATS system (automatic tensioning system) in an event in a collision.This will keep the retractors from pulling out and hold them tight where they are position in a collision event.

I would check and make sure if you remove any fuses that they were all installed in their correct positions.If these are found to be o.k. next I would have the fault codes checked to see if any codes have set in the vehicles computers mainly the air bag computer.There were some issues with these retractors failing and Saab did release a bulletin on these to replace the retractors to correct this fault as this needed to be done by a dealer and may be covered under warranty on some models still.

Thanks Pete

How about"was it parked on an incline"?

I don't think the emergency retractors would fault like this being parked on an incline unless the air bag computer though the angle of the vehicle was severe enough to set them off,in this case the seat belt retractors would need replaced.

any idea where the relay switch and/or the fuse is for the horns in this car. the horn does not work and I can't see a relay or fuse marked horn. Is it an inline fuse? Thanks again.

Your vehicles horn relay is located in the under hood fuse box.It should be the third relay up from the bottom right hand side of the relay box.
Fuse #3 in this fuse box should be the horn fuse as well.
