Toyota is recalling 22,000 vehicles due to a problem with the tire pressure monitor. The recall includes the Toyota FJ Cruiser, Land Cruiser, Sequoia, Tacoma and Tundra from the 2008 to 2011 model years.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said that the vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of federal motor vehicles safety standard No. 138, ‘Tire Pressure Monitoring System.’ The agency said that the tire pressure monitoring systems in the Toyota vehicles were not re-calibrated correctly and therefore do not start illuminating the low tire pressure warning at the required minimum activation pressure.

Dealers will re-initalize the tire pressure monitoring system free of charge. Owners can contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331 for more info.
