Recall risks

With rear turn signal lights being dimmed or not working at all, other motorists may not be aware of driver’s  intentions. This can lead to a crash, which increases the risk of an injury.

There are sensors in the driver-side front door frames that connect to the 2009-2015 Toyota Venza airbag system by electric wires. If one of these wires breaks, the airbag sensor in the door would fail. This would also cause the airbag warning light to illuminate. This is a dangerous situation because it disables the driver-side curtain airbags and the side airbags completely. 

According to Toyota, the sensor is connected by two twisted wires that are located inside a harness. These wires route through a grommet mounted in the door. Because of sizing differentiations, over time, the wires could break from rubbing on the grommet.

If they break, the result could be disabling the side airbags and leaving the driver unprotected in a crash situation.
