Hope Underradar doesn't own a Toyota

870k Toyotas recalled for spider-related problem

Toyota is recalling 870,000 vehicles because a problem with an air conditioner part could cause airbags to deploy unnecessarily .

In some cases, the problem was caused by spiders.

Sometimes, their webs can create a blockage in a drainage tube coming from the air conditioning condenser. That can cause water to drip down onto an airbag control module, causing a short circuit. That, in turn, could cause the airbag warning light to light up on the dashboard and it could even cause the driver's side airbag to deploy, something that happens with explosive force.

In some cases, there could also be a loss of power-steering force, Toyota said.

I just hope there aren't any spiders on that plane come January. It might make for an interesting flight to Byers Farm.

1 parachute. Mine.
My lab died, and no one on Duckhuntingchat even cared.

Never happen. UR's father would roll over in his grave if he bought a Jap car.

Jet. If I can get the pilots out of rehab by then. If not, I am pretty sure I can get that thing off the ground myself.

In sure if we drink enough beforehand, we can figure it out. It might not hurt so bad either when we make that sudden landing.

Had this issue in my 2011 highlander but it didn't short out the airbag....it ruined the carpet throughout. It was 6 months new and they said it wasn't covered because it was an act if God. Go figure. You also need to put it on a lift to be able to see it.

I think years ago on another forum, Under posted a picture of his vehicle and it was either a jeep or a Nissan suv

so I guess his relatives might have done some rolling in their graves
