Subject vehicles have an engine wire harness connected to the hybrid vehicle Power Control Unit. A portion of the wire harness could contact the cover at this connection point and wear overtime, causing an electrical short circuit. If sufficient heat is generated, there is an increased risk of a vehicle fire.
What to do
Customers will be contacted by registered letter requesting them to contact the nearest authorised Toyota Dealer to arrange a convenient time to have the repairs completed. Alternatively, contact Toyota's Customer Dialogue Centre to discuss.
