Toyota Announces Voluntary Recall to Replace Wiper Switches

October 10, 2013
TORRANCE, CA  October 10, 2013 – Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc. today announced that it will conduct a non-compliance recall involving approximately 10,000 Model Year 2013 – 2014 Camry, Camry Hybrid, 2013MY Avalon, Avalon Hybrid and 2014MY Corolla vehicles to replace the wiper switch.
During manufacture of the wiper switch assembly in the involved vehicles, certain contacts on the switch terminal could have been manufactured incorrectly.  This could lead to a potential short if the wiper is moved from OFF to the MIST setting.  A short can cause the windshield wipers to become inoperative.
Owners of the involved vehicles will be notified by first class mail to return their vehicles to a Toyota dealer for replacement of the wiper switch.
Detailed information is available to customers at and by calling the Toyota Customer Experience Center at 1-800-331-4331.
