Non-Takata airbag issue forces 2121 cars back to dealers for a fix.
Toyota has recalled the ‘ZZE122′ Corolla, over concerns about the ECU controlling the airbags.
According to the company, affected vehicles could experience electrical shorting in the airbag system, which in turn could damage the circuits in the airbag sensor assembly.
If the issue occurs, the airbags could become deactivated or inadvertently deploy, putting occupants at greater risk of injury or posing an accident hazard. This campaign isn’t related to the Takata airbag recall.
A total of 2121 vehicles are included in the campaign, built between May 2004 and February 2007. A VIN list is attached here.
Parts aren’t yet available to repair the Corolla, but Toyota will contact owners of the affected vehicles when they become available.
