2014 Toyota Prius RecallsPassenger Airbags
Sensors on board the vehicle detect the presence of a seated passenger and may not be calibrated correctly. These sensors determine whether the vehicle's airbag systems should be deployed in the event of a crash and may turn them off, causing risk of injury to a passenger. Dealers will recalibrate the vehicle's passenger sensors free of charge.
These vehicles are being recalled because one of the electronic components of the hybrid control system, the Intelligent Power Module (IPM), can fail internally. This module is located inside of the inverter module and contains transistors that may become damaged from high operating temperatures. If a failure were to occur, various warning lights would illuminate and the vehicle would only operate in a reduced power mode for a short time or stall completely, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will update the software in both the motor/generator control module and the hybrid control module to correct this concern. If an inverter module were to fail before the software updates are performed, it would be replaced as part of this recall.
