In the involved Toyota Avalon vehicles, certain circuits within the airbag control module may be susceptible to damage if exposed to electrical noise from other electrical components. In some instances, front airbag(s) and/or seat belt pre-tensioners could inadvertently deploy.
Dealers will remedy the condition by adding an electrical noise filter to the airbag control module.
Owners of vehicles subject to these recalls will receive a notification by first class mail.
