The issue is the sensors in the front passenger seats. According to the Japanese carmaker, the sensors could have been manufactured improperly, which can lead to a short circuit.

“This would not allow the airbag system to properly classify the occupant’s weight, and the airbag may not deploy,” said the company. They also added that it may increase the risk of injury.

Toyota will reach out to the customers by mid-February. They also mentioned that dealers would inspect the cars affected and have them replaced at “no cost to owners” if such problems exist.
