Report Receipt Date: JAN 30, 2013 
NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V029000 
Component(s): AIR BAGS 
Potential Number of Units Affected: 887,709 

SUMMARY:
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2003-2004 Corolla and Corolla Matrix vehicles and 2003-2004 Pontiac Vibe vehicles. The supplemental restraint system (SRS) circuits are susceptible to internal shorting. The electrical short may create an abnormal current flow and increased heat which can damage the circuits. This could result in an inadvertent deployment of the front airbags and/or seat belt pretensioners.
CONSEQUENCE:
Inadvertent deployment of the airbags or the seat belt pretensioners may increase the risk of injury and the possibility of a vehicle crash.
