Our friendly staff at Jay Wolfe Toyota of West County wanted to update you about the 2012-2014 Model Year Tundra and Sequoia Vehicles ECM software recall. Our dealership is fully equipped to check and see if your vehicle qualifies for this recall. We are also ready to service all Toyota vehicles impacted by this ECM recall.
Certain 2012 – 2014 Model Year Tundra and Sequoia vehicles have a software issue in their engine control module (ECM) that can, under specific conditions, cause a component known as the air injection pump to fail.
This causes the vehicle to enter its “Fail-Safe” mode which is also known as the “Limp-Home” mode. This mode drastically limits speed and features in order to protect the engine. This could lead to the need to schedule immediate repairs or lead to engine failure. The recall is totally free for Toyota owners and, if needed, fixes the software issues that can cause the failure.
Owners of 2012-2014 model year Toyota Tundra and Sequoia vehicles that have .7 liter gasoline or 5.7 Liter-Flex Fuel engines might be impacted by this recall. This is an estimated 39,000 Sequoia and 247,000 Tundra vehicles nationwide. If your check engine light code displays P0418 and/or P2445 your vehicle might be experiencing this software failure.
This recall had a former deadline of February 28th, 2016. This deadline has now been lifted and extends until further notice. Authorized Toyota dealers are instructed to provide a software patch if required for owners of affected vehicles. This service is free under the terms of the recall from Toyota.
