Plano, TX – July 30, 2022 – Toyota (NYSE:TM) is recalling 31,428 vehicles with a defective rear camera system. The monitor may show the front view instead of the rear view when the vehicle is in reverse. This increases the risk of a crash.
The vehicles included in this Toyota rearview camera recall include:
- 2022 Toyota Tundra
- 2022 Toyota Tundra Hybrid
The subject vehicles are equipped with a Panoramic View Monitoring (PVM) system, which is made up of cameras located around the vehicle. The PVM works in conjunction with the parking assist electronic control unit (ECU), which is a computer that tells the monitor which view to display.
Due to a programming error, under certain circumstances the monitor may display the front camera image instead of the rear camera image when the car is in reverse.
The component in question is the parking assist ECU, with part numbers 86792-0C051 and 86792-0C052.
Failure of the monitor to display the correct rearview camera image can prevent the driver from seeing obstacles behind the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Other recent Toyota recalls
The current recall is one of several Toyota Tundra recalls this year, and the second involving the rearview camera.
In May, nearly 20,000 Tundra pickup trucks were recalled over failure to show the video feed on the dashboard monitor. This problem was attributed to a Toyota software issue.
In early July, the 2022 Toyota Tundra and Toyota Tundra Hybrid vehicles were recalled over stability concerns caused by the powertrain detaching from its housing.
Other Toyota models have also been subject to recent recalls. Earlier in May, Toyota issued a recall over reduced stability affecting 17 models. Nearly half a million vehicles were included in the recall due to stability control that could fail to automatically turn back on when the vehicle is restarted.
To address the issue, owners can take their vehicles to a Toyota dealer for a free reprogramming of the parking assist ECU.
Owners will be notified about the repair program between July 27, 2022 and August 17, 2022.
