2022 Lexus NX, Toyota Tundra
Manufacturer: Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing
Number of vehicles affected: 83,725
Report Date: September 1, 2022
Issue: Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain 2022 Lexus NX250, NX350, and Toyota Tundra vehicles. The Skid Control ECU within the Brake Actuator Assembly may falsely detect an overcurrent condition of the Electronic Parking Brake (EPB) Actuator and enter a failsafe mode which prevents the EPB from being engaged. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 135, “Light Vehicle Brake Systems.” An electronic parking brake that cannot be engaged while in “park,” may result in a vehicle rollaway, increasing the risk of a crash.
Solution: Dealers will reprogram the Skid Control ECU, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed by October 31, 2022.
Contact: Owners may contact Toyota’s customer service at 1-800-331-4331. Toyota’s numbers for this recall is 22TA11 and 22LA04.
