Airbag Circuit Board Recall - 2003 & 2004 Corollas

Recommended Posts

http://pressroom.toyota.com/article_display.cfm?article_id=3775

 

Announced Jan 30, 2013. The recall affects some 2003 and 2004 model year Corollas. A component in the airbag control module can fail, potentially leading to airbag deployment.

 

Letters are to be mailed to owners. But, these are old cars and addresses may have changed. (I've moved three times since I bought the car). If I don't hear anything after a month or so, I'll call Toyota.

It's not the module that is defective, but rather there could be interference that produces a short. Toyota's fix is filters in the wires and covering the whole thing in plastic wrap (moisture issue?). I got the notice in the mail but wonder if wait for the next recall that is about faulty ingiters: http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/04/11/us-toyota-recall-idUSBRE93A04D20130411

I finally got the "D0B" recall done together with the passanger airbag recall.

They said they installed harness # 04002-66112 which is the correct thing to do: http://media.fixed-ops.com/Toy_Campaigns/D0B_tech.pdf

 

Too bad I had to replace the central sensor/airbag ECU myself on my own dime in the past.
