Toyota Airbag Recalls

Toyota Air bag Recalls


Avalon
Air bags
Description: On certain vehicles, due to improper assembly of the air bag inflator, which is used in the side air bag, the curtain shield air bag, and the knee air bag assembly, some inflators were produced with an insufficient amount of the heating agents necessary for proper air bag deployment. In this condition, the expansion force of the gas may be insufficient to properly inflate the air bag when the srs system is activated during a
crash.
Damage: This may increase the risk of injury to the occupant in the involved seating position in the event of a crash.
Year: 2006, 2005


Camry
Air bags
Description: On certain vehicles, due to improper assembly of the air bag inflator, which is used in the side air bag, the curtain shield air bag, and the knee air bag assembly, some inflators were produced with an insufficient amount of the heating agents necessary for proper air bag deployment. In this condition, the expansion force of the gas may be insufficient to properly inflate the air bag when the srs system is activated during a
crash.
Damage: This may increase the risk of injury to the occupant in the involved seating position in the event of a crash.

Air bags:side/window
Description: On certain vehicles equipped with curtain shield air bags (csa), one or both of the curtain air bags may be twisted near the inflator due to improper assembly.
Damage: If this occurs, the csa may not deploy rapidly enough when activated in a side impact collision. This may result in failure to provide the intended head protection, increasing the risk of injury.
Year: 2004, 2003, 2002

Air bags:frontal
Description: Vehicle description: Passenger vehicles. Incomplete deployment of the front passenger side air bag could occur in the event of a crash.
Damage: Unexpected air bag deployment can result in occupant injury.
Year: 2002

Air bags:frontal
Description: Vehicle description: Passenger vehicles equipped with a three-spoke style steering wheel. During air bag deployment, it is possible that the bottom seam of the front driver’s side air bag module cover (horn pad) could be torn away allowing the bottom portion of the cover to completely detach from the air bag module.
Damage: If this should occur, there is a possibility that the detached bottom portion may strike the driver causing personal injury.

Damage: In an accident, the air bag may not deploy, which could result in increased injury to the driver.
Year: 1990


Corolla
Air bags:frontal:sensor/control module
Description: If liquid is spilled in the console box area, the air bag warning light can illuminate and stay “on” during normal driving conditions.
Damage: This leakage condition could cause the air bag to inadvertently deploy.
Year: 1995, 1994, 1993

Air bags
Description: If the air bag computer in a subject vehicle experiences a mechanical shock (i.e., rapidly moving the front seat back against the stops or a sudden release of the parking brake) within a very short time after the engine is started, the air bag can deploy inadvertently.
Damage: Unexpected air bag deployment can result in occupant injury.
Year: 1997


Prius

In this condition, the expansion force of the gas may be insufficient to properly inflate the air bag when the srs system is activated during a
crash.
Damage: This may increase the risk of injury to the occupant in the involved seating position in the event of a crash.

Rav4
Air bags

Scion tc
Air bags
Description: On certain vehicles, due to improper assembly of the air bag inflator, which is used in the side air bag, the curtain shield air bag, and the knee air bag assembly, some inflators were produced with an insufficient amount of the heating agents necessary for proper air bag deployment. In this condition, the expansion force of the gas may be insufficient to properly inflate the air bag when the srs system is activated during a
crash.
Damage: This may increase the risk of injury to the occupant in the involved seating position in the event of a crash.
Year: 2006, 2005

Air bags:side/window
Description: On certain vehicles, the side impact seat-bolster and curtain side airbags may inadvertently deploy. This condition can occur if the door for that side of the vehicle is closed with a high rate of force while the vehicle’s ignition is in the on position or within 90 seconds of turning the ignition key from the on position to the off position.
Damage: If the side impact seat-bolster and curtain side airbags inadvertently deploy, they could cause personal injury if an occupant is seated on the same side of the vehicle as the door that is closed with a high rate of force. Until the repair has been performed, it is recommended that a minimal force/speed be used to close the driver and passenger doors or
closing the doors after 90 seconds have elapsed from turning the ignition key from the on to the off position.

Tacoma
Air bags:on-off switch assembly
Description: Vehicle description: Passenger vehicles. The statement required in the owner’s manual that “…the on-off switch should only ben used when a member of a passenger risk group identified in the request form in appendix b……is occupying the right front passenger seating position…” is mis-stated. This does not comply with the requirements of fmvss 208, “occupant crash protection.”
Damage: If the air bag switch is “off,” the seat occupant who is not a member of the passenger risk group would be subject to increased injury in the event of a vehicle crash.
Year: 1998

Air bags
Description: On certain vehicles, due to improper assembly of the air bag inflator, which is used in the side air bag, the curtain shield air bag, and the knee air bag assembly, some inflators were produced with an insufficient amount of the heating agents necessary for proper air bag deployment. In this condition, the expansion force of the gas may be insufficient to properly inflate the air bag when the srs system is activated during a
crash.
Damage: This may increase the risk of injury to the occupant in the involved seating position in the event of a crash.

Tundra
Air bags:on-off switch assembly
Description: Certain pickup trucks fail to comply with the requirements of federal motor vehicle safety standard no. 225, ‘child restraint anchorage systems.’ these vehicles have a manual air bag on-off switch to disable the front passenger air bag and do not have a child restraint lower anchorage system in the front passenger seat. This specification does not meet the standard requirements.
Damage: This standard establishes requirements for child restraint anchorage systems to ensure their proper location and strength for the effective securing of child restraints, to reduce the likelihood of the anchorage systems’ failure, and to increase the likelihood that child restraints are properly secured and thus more fully achieve their potential effectiveness in motor vehicles.
