2009 Toyota Highlander Recalls
For vehicles equipped with aftermarket accessory seat heaters, the seat heater elements in the front seats may short circuit if they are damaged by the seat cushion being compressed over time. This could result in a fire hazard.
The driver's side power window master switch may overheat and melt, causing a possible fire hazard.
The seat heater may not work because of a damaged heating element.
The driver's front airbag may not deploy as expected in the event of a crash.
Vehicles that had added on seat accessories such as seat cover installation, seat heaters or headrest DVD systems may not have had proper calibration procedures performed to properly operate the occupant sensing system of the passenger seat. This may result in the passenger front air bag being inadvertently deactivated, increasing risk of injury in an accident.
The load carrying capacity modification label may be missing.
All vehicles require certain informational labels. One of these required labels indicates the load carrying capacity of the vehicle, tires, and rims. This information is important to be noted so that the vehicle does not get overloaded with weight and become unsafe to drive.
