According to Toyota, water from the air conditioning condenser can leak onto the air bag control module and cause a short circuit. That could illuminate the air bag warning light, disable the air bag or cause the air bags to deploy inadvertently.

The power steering assist function could also become inoperable if the air bag control module is damaged, making the vehicles harder to steer.

Two injuries but not accidents have been reported to Toyota. Owners will be notified starting next month. Toyota dealers will repair the problem without charge.
