Default driver seat belt locks and won't relaease 99 ram 1500 ext cab

Ok hopefully someone here might be able to help me as I'm lost with this issue lol. I got the beat off my uncle who really never cared about it but I would rather my seat belt work. The driver seat belt randomly locked last year and never released rather than find the problem he broke the guts out of it and just sat on the slack. I replaced the belt unit over the summer with one from a local salvage yard and it worked for about a week and did it again to him and suffered the same fate broken apart till it fully released. I checked the seat belt fuse and it was fine so being I'm not really familiar with the setup thought maybe someone might know the issue? I got another seat belt unit but would rather not take the seat apart to put it in and have the same issue all over again. I checked all the connectors under the seats and all were tight no worn or broken wires. I've done all the work on this truck for the 6 years he has had it but this issue eludes me lol.

i believe there is something under the middle front seat if i remember right its a box that has a ball in it or something that gets stuck sometimes theres also a wire harness that gets plugged into it mine was loose and just simply securing it fixed it

I looked for the box and all was good there connectors were tight and found out one of the computers was for the airbag so left that be. I ended up finding out the solenoid on the seatbelt was causing the non release so I just removed the solenoid itself from the setup and belt functions normal and still locks on quick movements. Thanks for the info though!!
