2.2 what does that have to do with an air bag ?
Chevy Mechanic: Gunvir Singh,
 replied 10 months ago

Different engine sizes may have different airbag systems. So engine size is needed to make sure the right info is provided. Code 71 is not in the manufacture provided codes. Can you double check.

Did you RESET the Restraint System with Scan Tool after the retracter was replaced?

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
it always comes back the same code
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
i dsconected each componint and started the car and it would set a second code for each one and when reconected it wout clear except the b0081 symptom 71
Chevy Mechanic: Don - Mo Lurch, Auto Mech / Electronics replied 10 months ago

IF you just replace the retracter & have cleared ALL Trouble Codes & the B0081 / 71 returns, then further Testing Via Scan Tool is needed, as I am not aware of anyone that can "pinpoint" with this information, without Scan Tool to Test & Program the SDM and / or PPS
will opt out & relist

sorry
