Toyota Recalls Power Window Switches For 6.5m Vehicles
Because of a potential short circuit in the driver’s side power window switch, Toyota is recalling 6.5 million vehicles worldwide
Toyota said in release on Wednesday that the affected models here are: 2007 and 2009 Camry and Camry Hybrid, 2009-2011 Corolla, 2008-2011 Highlander and Highlander Hybrid, 2009-2011 Matrix, 2006-2011 RAV4, 2009-2011 Sequoia, 2009-2011 Tundra, 2006-2010 Yaris, 2009-2011 Scion xB, 2009-2010 Scion xD
According to Toyota, the switch might not have received adequate lubricant grease during manufacturing, and over time this could lead to a short circuit. In a worst-case scenario, the part might even overheat, melt and cause a fire. As a fix, dealers will inspect the component on these vehicles and apply heat-resistant grease to it, and any broken examples will have an internal circuit board replaced.
Toyota already issued one recall for this problem in 2012 when it had to repair 7.5 million vehicles globally from the 2007-2009 model years.
