Toyota is recalling certain model year 2005-2008 Corolla and Corolla Matrix vehicles. The engine control module (ECM) for the subject models equipped with the 1ZZZ-FE engine and two-wheel drive may have been improperly manufactured. There is a possibility that a crack may develop at certain solder points or on varistors on the circuit board.
There are a variety of warnings and consequences associated with the defect. The engine warning lamp could be illuminated, harsh shifting could result, the engine may not start, or the engine could shut off while the vehicle is being driven. An engine shutoff while the vehicle is being driven increases the risk of a crash.
Dealers will inspect the production number of the ECM and replace the ecm if necessary. This service will be performed free of charge. Toyota will mail an interim owner notification the middle of September 2010 to advise owners of this defect and recall. This interim notification will inform owners that they will receive a future notification when parts become available to have the free remedy performed on their vehicle. The safety recall began on November 29, 2010. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.
The subject vehicles are equipped with front passenger air bag inflators which may have been manufactured in such a way as to have a potential for the intrusion of moisture over time.
Depending on the circumstances, this could create excessive internal pressure when the air bag is deployed and cause the inflator to rupture. In the event of an inflator rupture, metal fragments could pass through the air bag cushion material, striking and potentially seriously injuring the vehicle occupants in a crash.
Toyota dealers are requested to replace the Airbag Inflator Module at NO CHARGE to the vehicle owner.
