Issues With ELECTRICAL SYSTEM


Toyota is recalling certain model year 2012-2013 avalon, avalon hv, venza, camry, and camry hv vehicles. in the affected vehicles, the drain hose for the air conditioning condenser may become clogged causing water to accumulate at the bottom of the air conditioning condenser unit housing. the accumulated water may then leak through a seam in the housing onto the air bag control module potentially resulting in a short circuit of the module.

A short circuit may cause the air bags to become disabled or inadvertently deploy. an inadvertent airbag deployment can increase the risk of injury or the possibility of a crash. an inoperative airbag can increase the risk of injury in a severe crash. the power steering assist could also become inoperable resulting in increased steering effort and can increase the risk of a crash at low speeds.

Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will seal the air conditioning condenser unit housing and install a protective cover on the airbag control module, free of charge. the recall began on february 5, 2014. owners may contact toyota at 1-800-331-4331.
