they tend to lock up when you stop abruptly or slow down fast so they must have some sort of mechanical thing inside the housing that moves when you slow or stop fast that locks it up, try turning it around the way its supposed to be installed and it should unlock. Ive never actually taken one apart so I cant tell you exactly, but perhaps someone else can.

Ever wrecked the vehicle? Some of them have safety mechanisms to fully retract and lock the belt after a wreck to tell the owner to replace it as it has been stretched too much for safe use but I don't know if it is on any of the Fords. Usually its triggered in an accident of over 30 mph.
