Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) has a recall for certain 2018-2020 Toyota Tundra vehicles equipped with LED headlight assemblies. Due to a wiring error, the front turn signals may not flash brightly enough. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.”
If the turn signals or hazard lamps do not flash brightly enough, other drivers may fail to see that the turn signal or hazard lamp functions have been activated, increasing the risk of a crash.
Toyota will notify owners of the recall, and dealers will modify the wire harness connected to the front turn signal bulbs free of charge. This recall is expected to begin by September 13, 2020. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-270-9371. Toyota’s number for this recall is 20TB12/20TA12.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
