This standard establishes requirements for child restraint anchorage systems to ensure their proper location and strength for the effective securing of child restraints, to reduce the likelihood of the anchorage systems' failure, and to increase the likelihood that child restraints are properly secured and thus more fully achieve their potential effectiveness in motor vehicles.

Air Bags — On-Off Switch Assembly

Date Announced
JUN 02, 2005
Vehicles Affected
Toyota Recall #
NHTSA Campaign #
Certain pickup trucks fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 225, 'child restraint anchorage systems.' These vehicles have a manual air bag on-off switch to disable the front passenger air bag and do not have a child restraint lower anchorage system in the front passenger seat. This specification does not meet the standard requirements.
Dealers will remove the manual air bag on-off switch, replace the owner's manual, and affix a new sun visor air bag warning label. The recall began in early January 2007. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.
