RepairPal Expert Overview on May 1, 2002

The spare tire that the vehicle is equipped with may not be marked as a "temporary use" spare tire. This could mislead a driver using the spare tire in thinking it is not for temporary use. Temporary use spare tires will exhibit different driving characteristics than a full size tire.

Toyota notified owners of affected vehicles starting in July 2002. 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 on August 27, 2001
Equipment description: this recall is for trailer towing wire harness converters installed by dealers or for installation on 1999-2000 toyota tundra and tacoma vehicles. the connectors integrate the vehicle's tail lights, brake lights, and turn signal lights with those equipped on the trailer, are defective. affected part numbers are: pt207-34000, pt207-34002, pt207-04981, and pt214-04985. in the tundra vehicles, the circuitry utilized in the converter was inadequate to properly manage vehicle and/or trailer-side voltage spikes. if the converter is exposed to a voltage spike, it may cause an electrical short or open circuit within the converter. in the tacoma vehicles, due to deficient waterproofing and improper installation location of the converter, which is mounted in the lower portion of the tailgate cavity of the vehicle, an electrical short circuit will occur if water enters the converter housing.
