Smile 1990 Camry Auto Seatbelt, key chime Problem

Hello,
I drive a 1990 Camry with just over 183,000 miles on it. The other day, both front auto seatbelts, ignition key chime and emergency seatbelt release chime stopped working. Fortunately, the seatbelts are in the closed positions, so the car is drivable. With the timing of all 3 problems happening at once, I figured it is probably one cause for this combined problem. I checked all fuses in all 3 boxes, and they are fine.
Does anyone have any idea what may be the problem here?

Thanks so much for your help!!
Tim

There is a seat belt fuse behind drivers side kick panel, have you checked this?

Yes,
I checked every regular fuse in the car. They're all good. Could it be one of the relays? Or a bus fuse? By regular fuse I mean the color coded ones that you use the tweezers included in the fuse box under the hood.
Any other ideas?

Thanks for your help.

Correction on the seat belt computer fuse it is a circuit breaker, location as stated in previous post. The gauge fuse also powers to the seat belt computer.

If you send a private message with email address will send a couple of files. These will explain the system better then anything I can post here.

I checked all breakers in all 3 boxes and all are good, yet problem remains.

The wiring and seat belt files should have voltage tests for the system. You may need to dig deeper then just checking the fuses.

Default Door Pin switch

Do you mean the switch that also activates the dome light? That switch is working-at least it turns on the dome light. Is there another switch to check?
Thanks for your help.

Default Problem Fixed!!

I have found & fixed the problem. It was the seatbelt module causing the issue with the key chime, seatbelts not working and the emergency release not dinging!! I had to pull out the center console. The module is bolted to the floor under the console. It unplugs easily and new one plugged right in. Problem Solved!!
