Attention All Toyota Prius 1.8 Owners

on

2013 toyota prius

The recall affects all Toyota Prius 1.8 worldwide.

UMW Toyota Motor is doing a service campaign for 6,160 units of Prius 1.8 sold between the year 2009 and 2013 in Malaysia.

The service campaign is to reprogram the software for both the Motor Generator Control ECU and Power Management ECU, which controls the boost converter in the inverter assembly. Although there are no cases reported in Malaysia, failure to reprogram the software will result in various warning lights illuminating, causing the vehicle to enter into safe mode, thus reducing power.

UMW Toyota Motor will contact affected customers to reprogram the software at no cost.

About Jack Lee

Jack Lee is an unqualified petrol head (some say, to be one, you have to own an Alfa Romeo) who is disappointed with cars which are getting more and more electronics and the lack of interest in cars shown by today's youths in general. He owns an almost 20 year car from Germany, which has almost 50:50 weight distribution, 3 pedals (manual, FTW!) and believes that everyone should spin at the last corner of Sepang circuit at least once in their life. He also holds the distinction in TCG as the person with the lightest right foot, of course, when compared with his colleagues' mutated cast iron right foot.
