Toyota has recalled three different models as part of its latest recall campaign.

The 2018-2019 Toyota Tundra and Sequoia and the 2019 Avalon have been recalled due to a fault with the airbag deployment software. According to the automaker, the air bag control computer may revert into a fault-detection mode when the vehicle is started, which may result in the airbags not deploying in the event of a crash. Roughly 188,000 vehicles are affected, with 185,000 vehicles in North America and 2,600 elsewhere.

Toyota is expected to notify owners of the recall campaign later this month. They will be instructed to schedule an appointment with their dealership’s service department to have the airbag control software updated. It’s not yet clear if any injuries have been linked to the issue, but concerned owners may contact Toyota’s customer service line at 800-331-4331.
