Tundra swept up in Toyota recall

Updated Oct 22, 2015

Toyota will recall approximately 2,000,000 vehicles is a widespread campaign related to the driver’s side power window master switch, including model years 2009-2011 Tundra.

The power window master switch in affected vehicles may have been manufactured with insufficient lubricant grease. If not enough grease is applied, under certain conditions the switch may develop a short circuit that can cause the switch assembly to overheat and melt. A melting switch can produce smoke and potentially lead to a fire.

Toyota previously recalled certain 2007-2009 model year vehicles for a similar condition. This recall adds vehicles not previously involved in the prior action that utilized an alternative lubricant application method.

Owners of the involved vehicles will be notified by first class mail. Toyota dealers will inspect the switch and apply heat-resistant grease.  If the switch is not operating normally, an internal circuit board will be replaced.
