I see no code 73 there is a code 7 and code 3. I will send you information to the email address you posted this question from. There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate

Sorry, it's a code 37. The airbag flashes 3 times, short pause, then 7 times.
