Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc. announced October 10 that it will conduct a non-compliance recall involving approximately 10,000 2013 – 2014 Camry and Camry Hybrid, 2013 Avalon and Avalon Hybrid as well as 2014 Corolla vehicles to replace the wiper switch.
Toyota explained 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.
As is customary with such recalls, 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.
