Recall 15V514000

Tire Pressure Monitoring Warning Does Not Work Properly

Recall Details

The tire pressure monitoring system may not be properly calibrated, and may not function properly to warn of low tires. Dealers will re-calibrate the tire pressure monitoring system free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The tire pressure monitoring system may not be calibrated properly and may not warn drivers when a tire is low, which could result in a tire becoming dangerously low and causing loss of vehicle control.

What Should You Do?

Toyota notified owners of affected vehicles starting in September 2015. You can check with your dealer to see if your vehicle is involved in this program. It is helpful to have your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) on hand when you contact them.

Summary
Southeast Toyota Distributors, LLC (SET) is recalling certain model year 2015 Toyota Prius C vehicles manufactured April 20, 2015, to June 30, 2015. In the affected vehicles, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) may be improperly calibrated and, as a result, the TPMS may fail to warn the driver that the tire pressure is low. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 138, "Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems."
Consequence
If the vehicle is driven on underinflated tires, the tires may fail. Sudden tire failure increases the risk of a crash.
