  1. 2004 Toyota Camry ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING NHTSA Campaign #11V539000

    • Date Announced: NOVEMBER 09, 2011
    • Vehicles Affected: 420,326

    Summary: Toyota is recalling certain model year 2004 avalon vehicles; 2004 and 2005 Camry, Camry Solara, highlander, and sienna vehicles, 2006 highlander hybrid; 2004 and 2005 Lexus ES330 and RX330; and 2006 Lexus rx400H vehicles manufactured from June 1, 2004 through March 31, 2005, equipped with the 1mz-fe or 3mz-fe engine. The amount of adhesive agent applied between the outer ring and the torsional rubber damper (inner ring) in the crankshaft pulley may be inadequate. If the adhesive is insufficient, there is a possibility that the outer ring may become misaligned and it may not properly rotate with the inner ring, causing noise and/or illumination of the battery discharge indicator light.

    Consequence: In some cases, the belt for the power steering pump may become detached from the pulley which could result in a loss of power steering and a sudden increase in steering effort, increasing the risk of a crash.

    Actions: Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will check the crankshaft pulley to identify whether it was produced by the U.S. supplier. If so, the dealer will replace the pulley with a new one at no charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during early January 2012. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.

  2. 2004 Toyota Camry SEAT BELTS:FRONT:BUCKLE ASSEMBLY NHTSA Campaign #04V595000

    • Date Announced: DECEMBER 15, 2004
    • Vehicles Affected: 150,061

    Summary: On certain passenger vehicles equipped with a front passenger power seat, when installing certain rear-facing infant child seat bases onto the seat with an excessively high seatbelt tension, it may be possible to unseat a component called the buckle status switch from the seat belt buckle.

    Consequence: If the switch becomes unseated, the front passenger occupant classification system may mistake the rear-facing child restraint for an unbelted adult occupant, and may not suppress the deployment of the front passenger airbag.

    Actions: Dealers will replace the front passenger seatbelt buckle status switch. This safety improvement campaign (ssc 40M) began on December 20, 2004. Owners should contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331 or Lexus at 1-800-255-3987.. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #04V595000 »

  3. 2004 Toyota Camry AIR BAGS:SIDE/WINDOW NHTSA Campaign #04V346000

    • Date Announced: JULY 13, 2004
    • Vehicles Affected: 128,316

    Summary: On certain vehicles equipped with curtain shield air bags (csa), one or both of the curtain air bags may be twisted near the inflator due to improper assembly.

    Consequence: If this occurs, the csa may not deploy rapidly enough when activated in a side impact collision. This may result in failure to provide the intended head protection, increasing the risk of injury.

    Actions: Dealers will inspect the csas and replace the air bag assembly if necessary. The recall began on August 6, 2004. Owners should contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #04V346000 »
