auto seat belts(not)

i have a 1994 Escort wagon with automatic seat belt that crosses the chest when the door closes ect. the belt started acting up for a few days and now it's not working and stuck in the open position.
I checked all fuses and checked the motor, Seems like there is no power too the motor, Is there an inline fuse somewhere that could be the problem and if so where would it be ? or is there something that i'm missing?

Don't know if it matters or not but it is the Drivers side that's not working right......
Door switches work fine (dome light) tried with Ign. switch on / off, Door switch (dome worked fine)
Used a 12 volt tester & it seems there is no power going to motor of seatbelt, My next trick is to try a strait wire from the Batt. to the pos. wire on motor. if that is the prob. I just don't know where a in-line fuse would be located for the Seatbelt?
Thanks for any help!

Where is the motor located? Somewhere in the door? If so, try looking for a broken wire in the looming going from the door to the body. Also, how did you check the fuses? Visually or with a test light on both posts? If you only did it visually, check it with a test light. I've come across fuses that look good, but are actually open.

I checked them visually, Will check as u said.
The motor is in the frame between the front and back door.
