Toyota has announced a voluntary safety recall of more than 800,000 vehicles due to a problem with the air conditioning condenser unit housing. The recall includes Model Year 2012-2013 Camrys, Camry Hybrids, Avalons, Avalon Hybrids and Venza vehicles.

The recall is due to an issue where water from the air conditioning condenser unit housing could leak onto the airbag control module, causing a short circuit which would result in the illumination of the airbag warning light. In some cases the air bag (s) could become disabled or inadvertently deploy.

The recall states in some instances, the power steering assist function could also become inoperable if a communication line in the airbag control module is damaged.  

To fix, Toyota dealers will apply sealant and install a cover to the air conditioning condenser unit housing seam located above the airbag control module.

If your vehicle is part of this recall you will be notified by mail to bring your vehicle to a Toyota dealer for the repair.

More information can be found on the Toyota’s website or by calling the Toyota Customer Experience Center at 1-800-331-4331.
