Toyota is recalling 1, 489 units of the FJ Cruiser and Tundra vehicles because the tire pressure monitoring system may not be properly calibrated, U.S. regulators said.
In certain 2011 FJ Cruisers and 2009-11 Tundras sold with accessory light-truck tires, the tire pressure warning lamp may not illuminate if the pressure in any of the tires falls below the threshold for when the lamp should light up.
Toyota will reset the system in most of the vehicles so they alert drivers as required.
For the FJ Cruiser, the tire pressure monitoring system computer module will be changed because it cannot be reset.
Toyota spokesman Brian Lyons said Saturday that the company is unaware of any crashes or injuries related to the tire pressure system recall.
Gulf States Toyota, a large, private distribution company that deals with 150 dealerships in five southern states, is recalibrating the systems free of charge.
The recall beings next month. Owners can call Toyota at 800-444-1074 or NHTSA’s safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
This year, Toyota already conducted five recall campaigns, totaling 2.45 million vehicles. In February the automaker has recalled 2.17 million vehicles.
