    My airbag light came on about 4 months ago and have been putting the repair off because of the cost. Mine better be covered under this recall.

    Did you punch your vin into Toyota.com/recall? Mine shows that there isn't any recalls, I am not sure if they haven't updated the website yet, or if mine is exempt...

    Enter your VIN here and you can find the recalls for your specific vehicle. Thus far, all I see is the gas pedal one for mine.

    http://www.toyota.com/owners/web/pages/resources/recalls

    Edit:

    Another article says that letters will begin going out as soon as the parts are sent to the dealerships, maybe sometime this month.

    http://www.torquenews.com/106/toyota-recalls-495000-tacoma-pickups-airbag-risks

    Here is a TacomaWorld article showing the part:

    According to what I have read the recall has not been released should be out in April. The down side of all these recalls is the car manufactures have to notify the government as soon as they decide to have the recall. Once the gov is notified the media get wind of it and the story hits months before owners will be notified. That just adds to the inconvenience for everyone

    Mine's been on for about a year now.

    I put a piece of electrical tape on the back side of the cluster when I had my LED's swapped so I wouldn't see the airbag light. lol

    I asked Josh to do that, but he wasn't sure if it would affect anything, so electrical tape it is!
