Manufacturer Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing
Components AIR BAGS, ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
Potential Number of Units Affected 168,187

 

Air Bags May Not Deploy as Intended/FMVSS 208, 214

If the air bags do not deploy as intended, it can increase the risk of injury in a crash.

 

Summary

Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain 2018-2019 Toyota Tundra and Sequoia vehicles and 2019 Toyota Avalon and Avalon Hybrid vehicles. The air bag electronic control unit (ECU) may erroneously detect a fault during the vehicle start-up self check. If this occurs, the ECU may not deploy the airbags as intended, in the event of a crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 208, “Occupant Crash Protection,” and 214, “Side Impact Protection.”

 

Remedy

Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will update the software for the air bag ECU, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 22, 2018. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-888-270-9371. Toyota’s number for this recall is J0X.

 

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

On October 4, 2018, Toyota filed a Noncompliance Information Report (NCIR) with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) informing the agency of our intent to conduct a voluntary Safety (Noncompliance) Recall on certain 2018 – 2019 model year Sequoia and Tundra vehicles and certain 2019 model year Avalon vehicles.

 

Condition

Due to inappropriate programming in the airbag electronic control unit (ECU), a fault may be erroneously detected during vehicle startup which would disable one or more of the sensors used to detect crashes. This could result in the side and curtain shield airbags and/or front and knee airbags not deploying as designed in a crash. As a result, there is an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash and regulatory requirements in certain markets may not be met. 

NOTE: This condition will set one of the following Diagnostic Trouble Codes: B1610, B1615, B1630, B1635, B1690, or B1695.

 

Remedy

For the involved vehicles, any authorized Toyota dealer will perform a software update on the center airbag sensor assembly FREE OF CHARGE to the customer.

NOTE: The remedy for J0X addresses the H0Y condition, the J0H condition, and the J0X condition. As a result, J0H is no longer active as of October 5, 2018 (note that H0Y is no longer active as of February 20, 2018, due to the launch of J0H). All vehicles involved in J0H and H0Y (whether or not J0H and/or H0Y were completed) are now included in Safety (Noncompliance) Recall J0X.

 

Covered Vehicles

There are approximately 168,200 vehicles covered by this Safety (Noncompliance) Recall. Approximately 540 vehicles involved in this Safety (Noncompliance) Recall were distributed to Puerto Rico.

             

Owner Letter Mailing Date

Toyota will begin to notify owners in late October 2018.

Toyota makes significant effort to obtain current customer name and address information from each state through industry resources when mailing owner letters. In the event your dealership receives a notice for a vehicle that was sold prior to the Safety (Noncompliance) Recall announcement, it is the dealership’s responsibility to forward the owner letter to the customer who purchased the vehicle.

Please note that only owners of the covered vehicles will be notified. If you are contacted by an owner who has not yet received a notification, please verify eligibility by confirming through TIS prior to performing repairs. Dealers should perform the repair as outlined in the Technical Instructions found on TIS.

                                                            

Dealer Inventory Procedures

New Vehicles in Dealership Inventory 

There are approximately 34,200 vehicles in new dealer inventory as of October 4, 2018.

StopUnder Title 49, Section 30112 of the United States Code, a dealer cannot sell, offer for sale, or introduce or deliver for introduction in interstate commerce a new motor vehicle when it is aware that the vehicle does not comply with an applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard or contains a defect related to motor vehicle safety.  Further, 49 Code of Federal Regulations §577.13 requires us to provide the following advisory:  It is a violation of Federal law for a dealer to deliver a new motor vehicle or any new or used item of motor vehicle equipment (including a tire) covered by this notification under a sale or lease until the defect or noncompliance is remedied.

 Toyota reimburses dealers for flooring costs associated with new vehicles held in dealership inventory until the recall remedy becomes available.  Toyota provides these flooring reimbursements at 60 day intervals.  Toyota reserves the right to withhold or charge-back any flooring reimbursement funds that may have been paid to the dealer if it determines that a new vehicle subject to a safety (noncompliance) recall was sold without first being remedied.

Vehicle Safety (Noncompliance) Recall completion should always be verified through TIS. We request your assistance to ensure involved vehicles are identified and not delivered prior to performing the remedy.

NOTE: Dealers can identify if any of their new and used inventory has any open campaigns in the Vehicle Inventory Summary available in Dealer Daily (https://dealerdaily.toyota.com/). The Vehicle Inventory Summary may take up to 4 hours to populate information for newly launched campaigns.

 

Inspection Reminder Mirror Hang Tags for Covered Vehicles in New Dealer Stock

To easily recognize vehicles involved in this Safety (Noncompliance) Recall, each dealership should utilize Inspection Reminder Hang Tags. Inside the vehicle’s glove box are stickers containing the VIN. Apply one of these stickers to the hang tag and install the hang tag in the vehicle. A sample copy of the Inspection Reminder Hang Tag has been included for your reference.

Pre-Owned Vehicles in Dealer Inventory

To ensure customer satisfaction, Toyota requests that dealers complete this Safety (Noncompliance) Recall on any used vehicles currently in dealer inventory that are covered by this Safety (Noncompliance) Recall prior to customer delivery. However, if the campaign cannot be completed (for example, due to remedy parts availability), delivery of a covered vehicle is acceptable if disclosed to the customer that the vehicle is involved in a Safety (Noncompliance)  Recall. 

Toyota expects dealers to use the attached Customer Contact and Vehicle Disclosure Form to obtain vehicle buyer information. Dealers are expected to provide a copy of the completed form, along with the most current FAQ, to the vehicle buyer. Toyota and the dealer may use this information to contact the customer when the remedy becomes available.

Keep the completed form on file at the dealership and send a copy to [email protected]toyota.com. In the subject line of the email state “Disclosure Form J0X” and include the VIN. 

NOTE: Dealers can identify if any of their new and used inventory has any open campaigns in the Vehicle Inventory Summary available in Dealer Daily (https://dealerdaily.toyota.com/). The Vehicle Inventory Summary may take up to 4 hours to populate information for newly launched campaigns.

 

Toyota Certified Used Vehicle (TCUV)

The TCUV policy prohibits the certification of any vehicle with an outstanding Safety (Noncompliance) Recall, Special Service Campaign, or Limited Service Campaign. Thus, no affected units are to be designated, sold, or delivered as a TCUV until all applicable Safety (Noncompliance) Recalls, Special Service Campaigns, and Limited Service Campaigns have been completed on that vehicle.

 

Toyota Rent-A-Car (TRAC) & Service Loaners
