Toyota Motor Corporation — Toyota Prius & Prius V MY2015-2019
What are the defects?
Due to improper assembly of the electrical contacts in the seat belt reminder switch, the driver's seat belt reminder system may fail to switch off after repeated use of the seat belt. This may cause continual chiming and warnings on the instrument cluster.
What are the hazards?
If the seat belt reminder switch does not turn off, the visual and sound alerts indicating that the seat belt is not correctly fastened may be a distraction to the driver.
What should consumers do?
Toyota will contact affected owners in writing, requesting that owners make an appointment at their preferred Toyota dealer for repairs, free of charge.
