This just in from the team at Toyota: sensors work much better when they’re connected during manufacturing.
“Toyota says federal safety standards require a vehicle to activate a warning light if there is a drop in the brake fluid level. However, the automaker says there is a possibility the wire harness that attaches to the brake fluid reservoir sensor was never connected during manufacturing.”
In other news: the sun is hot, traffic is the worst, and I can’t believe this actually went unchecked. There’s no word on when the recall will begin.
