The Tacoma recall is meant to replace a faulty steering wheel spiral cable assembly, while the Camry and Venza have the same problem.

According to the official statement, “during the installation of the contact-type stop lamp switch on one of the North American assembly lines, silicon grease may have reached the inside of the switch and caused an increase in electrical resistance. If this occurs, warning lamps on the instrument panel may be illuminated, the vehicle may not start, or the shift lever may not shift from the ‘Park’ position. In some cases, the vehicle stop lamps may become inoperative.”

This problem will affect 70,500 Camry’s and 116,000 Venza models, while a total of 495,000 Tacoma’s are potentially defective.
