A key interlock issue is prompting a recall from Toyota.

The automaker is recalling certain model year 2013-2016 Scion FR-S vehicles. In the affected vehicles, connectors for the automatic transmission key interlock may not have been connected during pre-delivery service prior to sale. If this delivery mode connector is not connected, it is possible to remove the key in gear positions other than "Park." This could increase the risk of vehicle rollaway and a crash.

This condition means that the vehicles fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 114.

About 26,000 vehicles are impacted.

All known owners of the subject vehicles will be notified by first class mail and instructed to return the vehicle to a Toyota dealer to have the ignition key interlock function remedied.

Customers with questions about this recall can contact Toyota Customer Service at (800) 331-4331.
