The airbag control module for the supplemental restraint system (SRS ECU) has been assembled with application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) that are susceptible to internal shorting when exposed to high inductive electrical noise from various vehicle electrical components. If this occurs, there is a possibility that the ASIC could become damaged, leading to the airbag(s) and/or seat belt pretensioners being deactivated or deploying inadvertently.
The recall affects the Model year 2002 to 2006 vehicles.

What the owner should do?
If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Toyota dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.
If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.
Check the vehicle's history
UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.
