UMW Toyota Motor Sdn Bhd (UMWT), distributor of Toyota and Lexus vehicles in Malaysia announced a Special Service Campaign (SSC) to update the Electronic Control Unit (ECU) of the Electric Parking Brake (EPB) system of certain units of Toyota Alphard and Vellfire. There are around 1,900 units of the two models manufactured from April 2016 to Feb 2018 involved in this campaign.
The conditions occurred due to improper programming of the ECU for electric parking brake system. Also, there is the possibility that a voltage reduction during an engine re-start after an idling stop could be judge as an abnormal occurrence if the battery experienced degradation. When this happens, a warning light would illuminate and the EPB system may not operate.
UMWT will notify all its affected vehicle owners officially to update the ECU programming at no charge to the customers. For further information, owners of affected cars can contact any authorised Toyota service centre or call the Toyota Freephone at 1800-8-TOYOTA (869682).
As a notice, Toyota owners can also visit Toyota’s Special Service Campaign webpage to check whether their vehicle is involved, through Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) Checker. Information on other vital SSCs is also available on the webpage.
