DETROIT (WWJ) - A problem with back-up cameras leads to a recall from Toyota.

The automaker is recalling roughly 18,000 of 2019 model year RAV4 and RAV4 hybrids in North America.

The vehicles are equipped with a back-up camera system which activates to show the area behind the vehicle when the vehicle is shifted into reverse. The automaker says a damaged connector in the audio display unit is causing the back-up camera system not to activate. If the driver reverses the vehicle without checking his/her surroundings when the vehicle has this condition, there can be an increased risk of a crash.

Toyota dealers will replace the audio display unit with a new one at no cost to customers. Owners of recalled vehicles will be notified by mail in early October 2019.
