Toyota is recalling about 17,000 model year 2004 –2006 Scion xAs in the U.S.
The vehicle's airbag system could experience electrical shorting that could damage the circuits in the system.
This could cause the airbag warning lights to illuminate and the airbag and seatbelt pretensioners to become deactivated. Or it could cause those systems to deploy inadvertently.
Either condition could increase the risk of injury or crash.
What to do
Toyota will notify owners and dealers will replace the airbag control unit with an improved one at no cost to customers.
The recall is expected to begin in late December.
Owners may contact Toyota at (800) 331-4331.
