Recall 19V319000

Front Seat Side Air Bags And Curtain Shield Air Bags Do Not Deploy When Needed

Recall Details

The wiring harnesses inside the doors that supply power to the front seat side air bags and curtain shield air bags may crack and corrode, preventing proper deployment as needed of the affected air bags in an accident. Dealers will replace the wire harness assembly in the front doors as needed free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The front seat side air bags and curtain shield air bags may not deploy as intended because the wiring harnesses for these components inside the front doors may crack and corrode. This increases risk of injury in a crash.

What Should You Do?

Recall repairs on your Toyota must be performed by a Toyota dealership. Toyota will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in June, 2019. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Toyota dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with. The Toyota recall designations are K1F and K0F.
