Toyota Ireland recalls certain ‘Prius’ passenger vehicles
February 5, 2020
Toyota Ireland is carrying out a voluntary recall of certain Prius passenger vehicles. The vehicles were produced between December 2015 and January 2018.
There is a possibility that in the driver’s seat belt reminder system, due to an improper assembly of the electrical contacts in the reminder switch, abnormal wear at the contacts may occur after repeated use of the seat belt and residue may be deposited. In this condition, the seat belt reminder could not be turned off even when the seat belt is correctly fastened due to a short circuit between the contacts.
The recall affects 781 passenger vehicles in the Republic of Ireland.
What to do:
Toyota Ireland will contact all affected vehicle owners and advise them to have the involved parts inspected and replaced if necessary.
