DETROIT (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — It’s a wiring problem can stop the side air bags from inflating in a crash, so Toyota is recalling nearly 280,000 Venza SUVs in the United States.

Documents posted Thursday by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration say wires to the air bag sensor in the driver’s side door can become damaged with regular use. That could stop the side and curtain air bags from deploying when needed.
Toyota said in documents that it received 31 field reports and 56 warranty claims in the U.S. due to the problem.READ MORE: Immigration Conversation Between Former President George W. Bush, Dirk Nowitzki And Mark Cuban Airs At Dallas Mavericks Game
