Toyota has recalled approximately 803,000 vehicles due to electrical problems that may cause the airbags not to deploy in the event of an accident. A faulty circuit caused by water leaking from the air conditioning system into the airbag module could cause the warning lights to turn on and off and may disable the airbags. In the event of a collision the airbags may not deploy or in some cases the airbags may inadvertently deploy without cause. Another possible issue resulting from the air conditioning leak could cause the power-steering to disable.
The recall includes 2012 and 2013 Camry hybrids and sedan models, as well as the Avalon sedan, and Venza crossover.
Toyota will notify owners, fix the sealant, and provide a new cover to the air conditioning system at no cost.
