Mercury Grand Marquis owners have reported 70 problems related to seat belt (under the seat belt category).
The seat belts will not stay attached. You can put them on and they appear to be locked in and you can pull on them to see if they are attached and they appear to attach but then while just sitting, they may pop-off you and become disengaged leaving you without your seat belt on you. This can occur if the car is in motion or if it is standing still. Sometimes it will even pop-off right after you put it in the buckle. They are faulty. We called Ford and they will not do anything to repair or recall it. I talked to 2 people at Ford customer care and sent them an email, also but they will not do anything to help us. We also contacted a Mercury dealer who told us to call Ford.

Both back seat belts don't retract as they should, the test was done when vehicle is stopped but I checked my other grandmarquis of 1997, it has the same issue. I also took it a mechanic and they checked two different but Ford crown victoria, it snowed the same issue. All vehicles were stationary during test. Is there any safety test I can perform to make sure they work or recall on this vehicle.
Seat belts will not retract after use and are stuck.
Hello, I own a 2005 Mercury Grand Marquis and have been experiencing an apparent problem with the air bag / seatbelt system. There is a light that is on that says airbag. I had it checked out by my local mechanic who said it was likely a seatbelt tensioner per the code in the computer. After doing some research online, I discovered that there were pages of people with similar problems. A working replacement could not be installed as these parts are numbered to the car and have to be repaired and reprogrammed. Dealers have quoted over $500+ for the repair, per my research. Given the amount of people just on the forums, for many years and mileages of this car, just for this problem. There is an apparent problem with Ford's s q. C. From the start. If they are going to install a safety system it ought not become a liability, as I don't know if it will save me or injure me much less if the seat belts will work in an emergency! your feedback is appreciated. If I have reached the wrong dept. In errata could you either forward this to the right party or let me know who to contact. Again there are numerous complaints online about these vehicles. I have experienced Ford not including on the recall list, models that have had recall problems before. Please help. Thank you kindly keith schneider.

The passengers side seat beat comes undone at times and the speed sensor works intermittently and it leaks gas from around the fuel pump.
I purchased the vehicle as a used vehicle with 42900 miles. The vehicle has no history of an accident on the carfax report. The airbag light came on and the repair ended up costing over $1000 because new sensors had to be installed for the seat belt assemblies. The automobile mechanic said this is common for 2005 Ford automobiles. Why hasn't Ford issued a recall to correct the problem?.
A spring in the driver's seat belt buckle failed, causing the airbag light on the instrument panel to illuminate and deactivate the air bag system in the event of a front impact requiring air bag deployment. The seat belt and buckle was required to be replaced. The air bag light illuminated every time the driver fastens the seat belt. The airbag light stays on and would not go off when the driver fastens the seat belt. The dealer traced this to a faulty seat belt latch. From reading on owners¿ blogs of this model, over several years including my model year, my problem does not appear to be a unique or rare occurrence. The most common causes are worn or broken springs on the switch in the seat belt latch. The switch in the seat belt latch not recognizing the driver in the driver¿s seat with the seat belt fastened causes the light to go on and deactivate the airbag restraint system for the driver. This safety item should be a model recall.

When the vehicle is started, the air bag light comes on and flashes the code 34. It then stays on as long as the vehicle is operating. The code mentioned above is for the passenger seat pre-tensioner. Since this is part of the safety equipment (belts may not lock during a collision), I believe this is an item the manufacturer should take care of. The dealer quoted $700 to replace the unit. This has been an ongoing issue with the vehicle.
1 passenger seat belt not functioning properly 2 speed control not working 3 passenger side headlight not working in low beam only high beam.

Airbag warning light illuminated. Diagnosis indicated seat belt pre-tensioner was defective. Since airbag would not deloy in this condition, it was replaced, costing $513. 00. Internet search shows numerous complaints. Safety recall is warranted.
On September 9, 2015 I purchased a used 2006 Mercury Grand Marquis LS. I was informed that the airbag light was on. I subsequently found that there had been some minor damage to the lower front of the vehicle, not resulting in airbag deployment. In researching the problem and to determine if there had been an airbag recall by the NHTSA, I found that there had been 57 registered complaints on the repair pal website and that a complaint had also been filed with the NHTSA. For this problem and that the problem was a result of defective seat-belt assemblies. There should be a safety recall issued for this problem as it effects the proper functionality of the restraint system in the event of a collision.

Car failed safety inspection due air bag warning light on. Diagnosis indicated that the driver's seat belt pretensioner had failed, and air bag would not inflate in a crash. The pretensioner had to be replaced. This seemed like a premature failure, as the car has only 47924 miles. The service desk person at the dealer said that this was very common in Mercury Grand Marquis. I did some checking on the internet and found that he was correct, according to all of the reports exactly like mine. In virginia a car fails for this light being on. I'm not sure about other states. In view of the frequency of this problem, I feel there should be a recall.

Air bag dash light started to flash several times and then remained illuminated steadily after a few days. Dealership conducted diagnostic scan, which revealed problem with both driver and passenger pretensioners, needing replacing. Their estimate was approx. $1,500. 00. From what we've researched, there appear to be numerous incidents of this nature. There should be a full investigation with possible recall. Cannot afford this repair!!.
My wife was involved in a head on collision on 01. 15. 2015. Impact was edge of one vehicle to edge of other vehicle. . She was wearing seat belt. Her side seat and steering wheel air bags deployed. My wife still hit the windshield with her head. No secondary impacts occurred (I. E. , 3rd vehicle or fixed object). Accident sheared the driver's wheel and brake assembly off completely. Completely splitting the aluminium wheel in half. Frame was also bent under the wheel-well housing towards the firewall. I am inquiring as to whether there are any other recorded incidents of similar occurrences with this vehicle. Seems strange that with these safety measures in place, and utilized a driver can still hit the windshield. (not absolutely certain of the vehicle's mileage. . . But it isn't high. ).

The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer who diagnosed that the seat belt sensor malfunctioned and the air bag may not deploy. The dealer stated that the seat belt assembly needed to be replaced. However, the repairs could not be performed since the parts were not available.

First noticed airbag light began flashing on and off. Within two days the airbag light came on and remained on. Had the dealer check this out. The report came back driver side seat belt was at fault. No repair available must be replaced.
Both air bag lights have stayed lighted four months apart. Replacement was a complete (using Ford motor CO parts) unit on driver-side in may 2014. Now(sept 9,2014) the passenger side unit needs replacement at a cost of $700. 00 for each side. The state of virginia inspection process requires replacement for the vehicle to pass. I'm told the air bag is in-operative when the light is on this a safety issue.
