Toyota is recalling about 18,000 model year 2019 RAV4s and RAV4 hybrids.
There is a possibility that a damaged connector in the back-up camera system's audio display unit is causing the system not to activate.
If the driver reverses the vehicle without checking his or her surroundings when the vehicle has this condition, there can be an increased risk of a crash.
What to do
Toyota will notify owners and dealers will replace any inoperative system with a new one at no cost to customers.
The recall is expected to begin early October 2019.
Owners may contact Toyota at (800) 331.4331.
