Air Bags Jan 16, 2019Report Receipt Date:Jan 16, 2019NHTSA Campaign:15V043000Summary:Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2003-2004 Toyota Corolla vehicles manufactured December 28, 2001, to May 2, 2004, 2003-2004 Toyota Corolla Matrix vehicles manufactured January 6, 2002, to April 29, 2004, 2003-2004 Avalon vehicles manufactured June 5, 2002, to December 20, 2004, and 2003-2004 Pontiac Vibe vehicles manufactured January 18, 2002, to April 27, 2004. Due to electrical noise, a component in the air bag control module may fail, causing the front air bags, side air bags, and/or seatbelt pretensioners to deploy inadvertently while the vehicle is being operated.Consequence:Inadvertent deployment of the air bags or the seat belt pretensioners increases the risk of an injury or crash.Remedy:Toyota will notify their owners. Pontiac Vibe owners will be notified by GM. Dealers will replace the air bag control module, free of charge. These parts are not currently available, however, an interim repair is available, free of charge, that reduces the risk of an inadvertent deployment. This recall remedy was applied during earlier recall campaigns of these vehicles under safety recalls 13V-029 and 14V-147. All owners that have not had a recall repair performed under safety recalls 13V-029 or 14V-147 are strongly encouraged to have it performed and not wait for the final remedy to be deployed to the field. The replacement ECU parts needed for the final remedy are not expected to be available until the latter part of 2015. Owners will be mailed an interim notification in late March 2015 and will be mailed a follow up notification when new air bag control modules are available. Toyota owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331. Pontiac owners may call 1-800-620-7...

This could result in an inadvertent deployment of the front air bags and/or seat belt pretensioners.Consequence:Inadvertent deployment of the air bags or the seat belt pretensioners increases the risk of an injury or crash.Remedy:Toyota will notify owners and dealers will install a noise filter between the air bag control module and the wire harness, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.
