00V103
On certain pickup trucks distributed by Gulf States Toyota and equipped with a Tekonsha trailer hitch wiring harness and converter, an electrical short circuit can occur if water enters the converter housing. This short circuit could cause a failure of the converter, and if a trailer is being towed at the time, can also cause inoperative trailer lights.

00V252
Certain passenger vehicles and light duty pickup trucks fitted with speed control devices at Gulf States Toyota's Vehicle Processing Center or installed by certain Toyota dealers in Gulf States' region (Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Texas) are equipped with an E-clip, which holds the speed control assembly to the accelerator linkage, that could break. If the E-clip fails, the speed control attachment could come off, causing the speed control to stop working. The loose attachment could cause the accelerator to stick, preventing normal stopping and handling of the vehicle.
Gulf States' dealers will replace the E-clip with a cotter pin. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began during September 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Gulf States at 1-800-444-1074.

00V256
On certain passenger vehicles registered in the states of Alaska, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, North Dakota, South Dakota, Vermont, Wisconsin, and Wyoming, condensed moisture from the Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) port could seep toward the brake vacuum port inside the intake manifold at freezing ambient temperatures and start to freeze. Vacuum assist to the brakes would decrease and increased pedal pressure would be required, increasing the vehicle stopping distance.
Dealers will repair the vacuum port. Also, owners of the subject vehicles in states other than the recall states will be notified of the recall. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was to begin during October 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.

00V285
On certain passenger vehicles, insufficient electrical contact can occur in the torque sensor that controls the power assist operation of the electric power steering gear box. The torque sensor could output improper electrical signals. If this occurs, the power steering warning icon will be displayed on the center panel, and the driver could experience higher than normal steering effort depending upon vehicle speed.
Dealers will repair the electric steering gear box. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was to begin during October 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.

01V012
On certain passenger vehicles built at Toyota's Kentucky plant, the accelerator cable housing could be deformed at the cruise control actuator-to-throttle body connection. The accelerator inner-cable could wear away and eventually break, allowing the throttle to return to idle or remain in its most recent position regardless of accelerator pedal operation. This could increase the risk of a crash.
Dealers will replace the accelerator cable. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was to begin during February 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.

Component not known


01V228
On certain sport utility vehicles, the reservoir filler cap of the brake master cylinder may induce a vacuum, introducing some air into the brake master cylinder reservoir. This could cause abnormal brake noise and increased pedal stroke when the brakes are applied. The increased pedal stroke will lengthen the stopping distance of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Dealers will bleed the air from the brake lines and replace the reservoir filler cap. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began July 30, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.

02T015
Certain P195/65R15 tires produced for use on certain 2003 model year Toyota Corolla S and LE vehicles may develop a "raised tread block" and cause a "helicopter type" noise. Continued use of a tire with this condition may lead to a localized "chunk out" of tread material, and possibly result in a vehicle crash. The DOT tire identification numbers for the recalled tires are W2C6T001402 and W2C6T001502.
Bridgestone/Firestone dealers will replace these tires. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Sept. 10, 2002. Owners should contact BFS at 1-800-367-3872.

02V074001
On certain passenger vehicles, it is possible for the bolts that join the rear brake and hub assembly to the rear axle carrier to be loose due to insufficient tightening during the assembly process. If the vehicle is operated in this condition, one or more of the four bolts could come loose, causing an abnormal noise from the rear axle area. In the event that all four bolts loosen completely, separation of the rear brake and hub assembly from the rear axle carrier could occur, which could lead to a loss of vehicle control.
Dealers will properly tighten the bolts. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began March 21, 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.
